With two-thirds of the world's population living in cities by 2050, the twenty-first century will be the urban epoch. How then will the city - the stage where numerous global forces play with and against each other - further develop? And who will bear responsability for its future?

 

POWER stakes out a role for a vigorous architecture by refocusing attention on the city's future.


"Urbanism doesn't exist. It is only an ideology in Marx's sense of the word." (Koolhaas in S,M,L,XL, 1995)
