Architecture - Published: 26/Feb/2018 - ISBN: 9780713998757

Tracing the relation between how cities are built and how people live in them and rethinking the reputations of Jane Jacobs, Lewis Mumford and others Sennett takes us on a tour to show how the 'closed city' - segregated, regimented, and controlled has spread from the global North to the global South. As an alternative, he argues for the 'open city,' where citizens actively hash out their differences and planners experiment with urban forms that make it easier for residents to cope. A bold and original vision for the future of cities formed from Sennett's intimate engagement with city life.
