Since cities emerged ten thousand years ago, they have become one of the most impressive artifacts of humanity. But their evolution has been anything but linear—cities have gone through moments of radical change, turning points that redefine their very essence. In this book, a renowned architect and urban planner who studies the intersection of cities and technology argues that we are in such a moment. The authors explain some of the forces behind urban change and offer new visions of the many possibilities for tomorrow’s city. Pervasive digital systems that layer our cities are transforming urban life. The authors provide a front-row seat to this change. Their work at the MIT Senseable City Laboratory allows experimentation and implementation of a variety of urban initiatives and concepts, from assistive condition-monitoring bicycles to trash with embedded tracking sensors, from mobility to energy, from participation to production. They call for a new approach to envisioning cities: futurecraft, a symbiotic development of urban ideas by designers and the public. With such participation, we can collectively imagine, examine, choose, and shape the most desirable future of our cities.

Cities of Tomorrow and the City to Come

What we need is a way to distinguish between the cities of tomorrow—to admit
that some of them are better than others—while admitting that none of them are
the City of God. What we need is to balance two distinct forms of imagination: the

Each day, the world’s urban population swells by almost 200,000. With every passing week, more than a million people new to cities face unexpected realities and challenges of urban life. Just like the sheer volume of people in the city, these challenges can be staggering. As with the height and breadth of our metropolises, the wonders of urban life can be breathtaking. Like the city itself, the questions and challenges of urban life are both sprawling and pulsing with vitality. As part of Zondervan's Ordinary Theology series, this volume offers a series of Christian reflections on some of the most basic and universal challenges of 21st century urban life. It takes one important dimension of what it means to be human—that human beings are made to be for God, for others, and for creation—and asks, “What are the implications of who God made us to be for how we ought to live in our cities?” This book is intended for Christians facing the riddle of urban creation care, discerning the shape of community life, struggling with the challenges of wealth and poverty, and wondering at the global influence of cities. It is meant for those whose lives and livelihoods are inextricably bound up in the flourishing of their neighborhood and also for those who live in the shadow of cities. Most of all, it is meant for those grappling with the relationship between the cities of tomorrow and the glorious city to come.

Essential Le Corbusier brings together in one volume the three main books in the Architectural Press Le Corbusier series: Towards a New Architecture; The Decorative Art of Today and The City of Tomorrow. These classic texts provide architects and students of architecture with the information they need about Le Corbusier and his works in one, complete, highly illustrated volume. Towards a New Architecture The only piece of architectural writing that will be classed among the "essential literature of the 20th century." In Vers une Architecture, published in Paris in 1923, Le Corbusier equates the pure forms of the machine with the pure forms of the Parthenon, to illustrate his view of architecture as a question of mass rather than facades, and that machines are highly architectural. First published in English in 1927, it is now the most influential architectural manifesto of modern times. The City of Tomorrow 'In this book there repeatedly occur statements, comments and criticisms that strike a completely contemporary note and indicate his awareness of the same environmental problems that we are occupied with today. He saw further ahead than we may think.' J.M.Richards The Decorative Art of Today This volume concerned with design, Le Corbusier's principal theme, is the distinction between a work of art and an object of use. He states that the latter should not attempt to usurp the role of the former. The arguments put forward, which are essential to an understanding of Le Corbusier's apparently reductivist design, are nowhere else systematically advanced. Full of wit and vitality, this essay provides essential reading for his admirers by covering important aspects of his thought at a crucial period. Brings all of the essential Le Corbusier articles in the famous L'Esprit Nouveau magazines into one volume Highly illustrated, mainly with Le Corbusier's own drawings
