Reviews - What do customers think about Talking Cities: The Micropolitics of Urban Space / Die Mikropolitik des urbanen Raums?

brief global survey  Oct 4, 2007
Written in German and English, the book is a glossy exhibition of urban architecture throughout the world. Not all the photos are of beautiful, sparkling buildings. One shows some kids riding mountain bikes over an old rubbish dump in a European city.

Other photos are of Desert Cities in Egypt. Commissioned by Sadat, these are high rises of flats. Each some 10 stories or so. The extreme population pressures along the Nile has given rise, of necessity, to some very bleak images. The snapshots of the cities show concrete buildings surrounded by desert sands, with very little vegetation to relieve the stark monotony.

Some of the so-called "Risky Buildings" of Britain are shown. Some architects claim unappreciated merits to these buildings, to try to ensure their preservation. The photos of the buildings may lead some readers to agree. But some buildings do seem deserving of take down.
