Urban Futures brings together commentaries from a wide range of
contemporary disciplines and fields relevant to urban culture, form
and society. The book concerns cities in the broadest sense, not
just as buildings and spaces, but also as processes and events or
sites of occupation, in which meanings are constructed in many
ways. The contributors draw on their specialist areas of research
to inform current debate, but they also speculate as to how cities
will be shaped in the 21st century. Specific areas of research
include homeless people's organisations and restoration ecology in
brownfield sites in the USA, post-industrial urban landscapes,
post-industrial economics, tourism and cultural planning. The book
allows each writer to state their own conclusions, but together
they suggest that tomorrow's cities will, while remaining locations
of difference and contestation, be rapidly evolving systems in
which dwellers assume increasing responsibilities and power.
