Summary
"In our rush to embrace the future, we invented new ways of building that rejected the past and sent people headlong into a placeless limbo where they are isolated from each other and cut off from such basic experiences of location as weather and the time of day." "In Global City Blues, renowned architect Daniel Solomon presents a perceptive overview and insightful assessment of how the power and seductiveness of modernist ideals led us on this wayward path. Through a series of independent but linked essays, he takes the reader on a personal expedition, introducing people, places, and ideas that have shaped thinking about planning and building and that laid the foundation for his beliefs about the world we inhabit and the kind of world we should strive to create."--BOOK JACKET
