The companion to The Endless City, with the same mix of writing, images, and incisive data on the field of urban development and its related disciplines, and again edited by Ricky Burdett of the London School of Economics and Deyan Sudjic of the Design Museum, London, this time assisted by Ömer Çavuşoğlu. The book focuses on Istanbul, Mumbai and São Paulo, with essays and data on vital themes including security, climate change, democracy and globalisation in these three cities as well as the six featured in The Endless City: Berlin, Johannesburg, London, Mexico City, New York City and Shanghai.
I worked on copy-editing and proofing, after having also worked on the newspapers for the three conferences. Published by Phaidon, and designed by Atelier Works. For more information see the Urban Age website. The book counts 452 pages and appeared in 2011.
I’ve taken the images, which show what the book looks like in a playful way, from a review on the Domus website.
