SPECULATIVE CITIES: VANCOUVER, PANAMA CITY AND DUBAI. Ed. by Glen Lowry et al. Artifice Books on Architecture, London, 2016. 96 pp. with 60 col. ills. 20 x 15 cm. ISBN 9781908967831 In English.
Due date: November 2016. Publisher's description: Speculative Cities furthers an international dialogue on the contemporary city, focusing on port cities and cities that have reinvented themselves over the past 40 years. Dubai, Panama City, and Vancouver share striking similarities: all are important gateways within their specific geographic and economic contexts and all have the reputation of developing innovative, at times controversial, experiments in urban planning. These new world cities, gateway port cities, and terminal cities have evolved or reinvented themselves through strategies that catalyse shifts from historical economies and civic functions towards other processes of exchange that signal a transition into globalisation. Bringing together architects, urban planners, artists, curators, and scholars from Dubai, Panama City and Vancouver, the book documents an in-depth exchange of research on the intersections of urban studies, contemporary art, and public engagement that is relevant to all gateway cities.
