The City Between Freedom and Security - Contested Public Spaces in the 21st Century

Author(s): Deane Simpson

urbanism | Birkhauser

This publication explores the contested territory between the state and corporate drive to 'securitise' urban space - and the principle of the city as a site for enacting open civil society, participatory democracy, and the freedom of speech and assembly. The book functions as a broader discursive platform mediating opposing positions at the intersection of architecture/urbanism and security/democracy.
