Beschreibung:

Instant Cities analyses the current stratospheric rise of the city, looking at global megacities from the first to the third world, such as Frank Lloyd Wright's Broadacre City, Milton Keynes in the UK, Lakewood, CA, Brasilia and its satellite towns, Bangalore, India's Silicon Valley, and Pudong, Shanghai. In doing so, "Instant Cities" investigates how humanity adapts socially and culturally within a dense population. With building space throughout the world at a premium and environmentally-sound development of tremendous importance to the future of the planet, "Instant Cities" looks ahead, to creative, forward-thinking and possibly fanciful notions of the city, such as biospheres, space stations and virtual realities.
