ARCHITECTURE, URBANISM & DESIGN

METROPOLIS NONFORMAL

From LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE MAGAZINE JUNE 2016

"Informal settlements are home to nearly one billion people, and that figure is set to rise in the coming decade. This book, a collection of 25 essays culled from the Metropolis Nonformal symposia and illustrated with color photographs and drawings, ranges widely across geographies and approaches. In attempting to survey the settlement landscape, Werthmann, a professor of landscape architecture and design at Leibniz University in Hannover, Germany, and Bridger, an urbanist and frequent contributor to LAM, begin to articulate a series of questions about rapid urbanization and globalization that will become increasingly relevant to practitioners and citizens."
