Implosions/Explosions book launch at UCL

Dec 12, 2013

A new book surveying the theoretical foundations and methodological orientations  for our work in the Urban Theory Lab has now been published:  Implosions/Explosions: Towards a Study of Planetary Urbanization (Berlin: Jovis, 2013).  The book is now available for purchase in the United Kingdom and Europe and will be released in North America in early Spring 2014.  A book launch event was held in London in December 2013 following Neil Brenner’s Centenary Lecture at UCL.  We are grateful to Jovis Verlag and the Building Centre Bookshop in London for organizing this celebratory event.
