De-/signing the Urban: Techno-genesis and the Urban Image
Patrick Healy, Gerhard Bruyns
010 Publishers, 2006 - Architecture - 397 pages
De-Signing the Urban represents the fruits of a year-long forum held at the Delft School of Design (DSD), a laboratory for research and experimentation in architecture, urbanism and technologies of construction at the TU Delft. The papers in this collection are by renowned visiting scholars, faculty members, and doctoral candidates who contributed to workshops, seminars and lectures given within a guiding framework entitled 'forms and relations'. They address issues which have come to increasingly shift our understanding of architecture and urbanism. Their authors offer insight on urban processes and the aesthetic challenge for contemporary design in relation to image, technology and life sciences. In many of these contributions case studies link arms with debates on critique and praxis.
