TERRITORY: ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF LANDSCAPE AND CITY. Park Books, Zurich, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by University of Chicago Press. 220 pp. with 102 ills. (78 col.). 24 x 17 cm. ISBN 9783038600237 In English.
Publisher's description: From 2008 to 2014, ETH Studio Basel, under the guidance of Roger Diener and Marecl Meili, has been investigating the process of urbanization taking place outside cities. Territory brings together the results of their research in six significant locations: the Nile Valley; Rome-Adria, Italy; the Florida hinterlands; the Red River Delta in Vietnam; northern Oman, and Belo Horizonte and Minas Gerais in Brazil. To describe the space surrounding cities, previously considered landscape, the contributors to this book use the term territory to denote both the surroundings that a city subsumes into its own structure and the core city itself, which is the center of this process of urbanization. And for each of the territories featured in the book, they investigate such key aspects of urbanization as water management, networks and infrastructure, agriculture, the role of mining and industrial production, and settlements.
