In the Life of Cities: Parallel Narratives of the Urban/NORTHAMERICA Part 6

 

This colloquium addresses the complex relations between urban artifacts and urban life. Architects, planners, and urban designers describe and give shape to the city, while novelists, humanists, and other scholars examine its operations and performances. What are the reciprocities between these two activities? How does the physical character of an urban environment influence or enable the events that take place within a specific setting?
