THE FABRIC OF SPACE: WATER, MODERNITY AND THE URBAN IMAGINATION. Matthew Gandy. MIT Press, Cambridge, 2014. 362 pp. with 42 ills. 24 x 19 cm. LC 2014-13240 ISBN 9780262028257 In English.
Publisher's description: Water lies at the intersection of landscape and infrastructure, crossing between visible and invisible domains of urban space, in the tanks and buckets of the global South and the vast subterranean technological networks of the global North. In this book, Matthew Gandy considers the cultural and material significance of water through the experiences of six cities: Paris, Berlin, Lagos, Mumbai, Los Angeles, and London. Tracing the evolving relationships among modernity, nature, and the urban imagination, from different vantage points and through different periods, Gandy uses water as a lens through which to observe both the ambiguities and the limits of nature as conventionally understood.
