Out of Ground Zero: Case Studies in Urban Reinvention
Joann Ockman (ed)
The events that took place on Sept. 11, 2001, in New York City are the subtext for this series of essays exploring the response of cities at different times & in different places to natural or man-made disaster. How have the cities coped with cataclysmic change in the urban fabric both physically & psychologically? How have they memorialized what they have lost, & how have they imagined their future? What have been the effects, in both the short & long term, of these efforts to reinvent the city? Here are varying perspectives on urban crisis, resilience, & reinvention. Concludes with a critical reflection on contemporary urban culture. Contributors include urban theorists, architectural historians, cultural critics, architects, & a filmmaker. Illus.
