Item description for Other Cities, The (Edition Bauhaus Volume) by Elizabeth Kremer...
When the public coffers are low, the burden for social policy and urban planning falls more to citizens, and community apathy or simply lack of involvement can have dire consequences. Addressing this globally crucial issue is the second volume in a series from the International Building Exhibition (IBA), an initiative helmed by the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation--housed in Walter Gropius's former studio--and exploring urban redevelopment in a number of German cities. The aim is that these pilot programs will provide practical models for worldwide urban research and design by 2010. Here, both local administrators and planning experts examine the role of citizen commitment, whether in direct political action or in everyday urban life.
