THE EXPLOSION OF THE URBAN

Neil Brenner, La Explosión de la Urbano (Santiago de Chile:  ARQ editiones, 2016) 

This book, produced by our colleagues in the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Urban Studies at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, contains English and Spanish versions of several key articles by Neil Brenner on critical urban theory and planetary urbanization.  Framed by brief introductory essays by UTL researchers, Martín Arboleda and Daniel Ibañez, the volume also contains a dossier of cartographic work produced in the UTL in conjunction with our research on the "extreme territories" of planetary urbanization.  The volume concludes with a dialogue between Neil Brenner and Daniel Ibañez on the agency of design under contemporary conditions.
