Mutant territories: Urbanism and city
This collection of texts on the changes made in territories and cities over the past three decades is orchestrated in six sections. The first covers urban mutations during the final decade of the 20th century, steered by a growth spurt that blurred the identity of cities; the second centers on public spaces and defends the amiable urbanity of the environment; the third focuses on the landscape, deploring the aggressions inflicted on Spanish coasts and historic centers; the fourth deals with the swelling of the real-estate bubble, its bursting in 2008, and the act of contrition of architectures generated by that building boom; the fifth upholds urban density as the tool for confronting the climate challenge; and the sixth section recalls ideal cities, going over the changes of the last two centuries to then look toward the future at a time that should perhaps be called Urbanocene.
