This is a short catalogue from our stock on city planning and housing in the 20th century including post war reconstruction.
In the midst of the present COVID 19 pandemic, it seems a good moment to think about the post COVID world of city life and housing. The pandemic took most people by surprise and, unlike during world war II, where planners and architects considered post war construction from the outset, how to architect the future after COVID 19 seems to have been a matter of thinking on ones feet. Pop up cycle lanes and solutions to countering over crowded cities and public transport are under consideration. This list includes some texts which may be have contemporary relevance today in developing urban and rural strategies in the 21st century.
