Exploring the Production of Urban Space : Differential Space in Three Post-Industrial Cities (Hardcover) - image 1 of 1

about this item

This book looks at the state of three widely divergent post-industrial cities—Manchester, England, Vancouver, Canada, and Lowell, Massachusetts in the United States—to see what we can learn by comparing how they have created and used public space. Critically engaging with the spatial theories of Henri Lefebvre, Michael Edema Leary-Owhin digs deep into the fabric of these cities, uncovering unlikely alliances, unexpected intersections of personal influence and public policy, and more. The result will challenge current thinking about urban space and its production, and it will influence scholars and urban planners alike.
