Old INURA friends Camilla Perrone and Giancarlo Paba started editing a book in which each contributor would write a chapter about a book which they had especially valued and how it had influenced them. During the gestation of the book Giancarlo died and now the project has become, in effect, a tribute to him – especially for those contributors who had been his students at the University of Florence. The book is called Critical Planning & Design: Roots, pathways, and frames.
I have contributed a chapter about David Harvey’s The Urbanization of Capital, 1985. The text I have submitted is here for those who would like to read it. This is in accordance with the publisher’s contract. I’ll post further details when the book nears publication.
