An authoritative - and fascinating - investigation into the spatial and social dynamics of cities at a global scale

Shaping Cities in an Urban Age is the third and final addition to Phaidon's hugely successful Urban Age series, published in collaboration with the London School of Economics (LSE).

Generously illustrated with photographs, visual data, and statistics, and featuring a series of essays written by leading people in their fields, Shaping Cities in an Urban Age addresses our most urgent contemporary and future urban issues by examining a set of key forces that have combined to create the city as we know it today.

From the publisher of The Endless City and Living in the Endless City.

Industry Reviews

"As resourceful for architects and policy-makers as it is for anyone interested in how we live now... It enlightens on everything from climate to crime to culture. As a data-driven study, it has a proven takeaway: civic participation is key to defining metropolitan problems while design is key to providing the right solutions."--Aesthetica
