This, combined with social developments of increased democracy, citizenship and public participation has brought about the development of architecture centres around the world. Many have different directions but they all overlap in their aim to provide education and information about architecture at all levels. The first and only directory to present all architecture centres in Europe and North America Includes contributions and important essays from key thinkers/activists in the field, including: Charles Landry (Comedia), Joe Kerr (Royal College of Art), Ben Rogers (Institute of Public Policy Research), Janice Kirkpatrick (Graven Images) and Tom Dyckhoff (Architecture Critic, The Times) Packed with case studies and images of the activities undertaken by the centres Includes a definitive international directory of centres

At the end of the Second World War, Phoenix began a process of growth and development that transformed it from a modest sized city into a great American metropolis. The capital of a state still regarded as close to the frontier, Phoenix began with an economy dominated by agriculture, tourism, and health-seekers. Within a few years, it was a leading competitor in the emerging new economy of electronics and high technology. This book describes how Phoenicians met the challenges of the postwar era and took advantage of both national trends and local opportunities to build a growth machine that has continued until today Phoenix is the fifth largest city in the United States. From 1944 to 1973, Phoenixs political economy was largely under the control of a local business and civic elite. Although not homogeneous, this leadership successfully imposed its growth-oriented vision of the citys future on the larger population. Contrary visions were all too often effectively ignored or suppressed. Touching on nearly all aspects of the citys development, The Emerging Metropolis demonstrates how many seemingly separate strands of growth were vitally interconnected. Political, economic, and social trends and events did not occur in isolation from each other. Each of these sectors compelled change elsewhere while at the same time constraining opportunities. Not merely the story of change and progress, this book also gives due regard to the limitations and failures that prevented the leadership from entirely attaining their envisioned metropolis. Not the least of these was the eventual loss of local control over Phoenixs economy. Still, the achievements of this era included monumental strides in the development of many cultural, educational, social, and economic institutions. Perhaps its greatest legacy, both for good and ill, was an irrepressible momentum towards future developmenta political economy that is a juggernaut of growth.

In this new work, prizewinning author, professor, and Slate architecture critic Witold Rybczynski returns to the territory he knows best: writing about the way people live, just as he did in the acclaimed bestsellers Home and A Clearing in the Distance. In Makeshift Metropolis, Rybczynski has drawn upon a lifetime of observing cities to craft a concise and insightful book that is at once an intellectual history and a masterful critique. Makeshift Metropolis describes how current ideas about urban planning evolved from the movements that defined the twentieth century, such as City Beautiful, the Garden City, and the seminal ideas of Frank Lloyd Wright and Jane Jacobs. If the twentieth century was the age of planning, we now find ourselves in the age of the market, Rybczynski argues, where entrepreneurial developers are shaping the twenty-first-century city with mixed-use developments, downtown living, heterogeneity, density, and liveliness. He introduces readers to projects like Brooklyn Bridge Park, the Yards in Washington, D.C., and, further afield, to the new city of Modi’in, Israel—sites that, in this age of resource scarcity, economic turmoil, and changing human demands, challenge our notion of the city. Erudite and immensely engaging, Makeshift Metropolis is an affirmation of Rybczynski’s role as one of our most original thinkers on the way we live today.
