The Civic City In A Nomadic World (Paperback)
We are in the midst of redesigning the world and all its systems as we witness the biggest mass movement of people, goods, factories, frenzied finance, and ideas in history. Vast flows make the new norm nomadic. Yet there is a yearning for belonging, distinctiveness, and identity as the ‘anytime, anyplace, anywhere’ phenomenon enabled by digitization is changing how we interact with space, place, and time. This is the Civic City. It tries to find a pathway through the major faultlines, dilemmas and potentials of our time – shared lives, inequality, environmental distress, and urban vitality. In this book, the inventor of the "Creative City" concept helps us navigate the evolving urban landscapes and its potential.
