Description
Summary:Cities are more than concrete and steel infrastructure. But modern urban theory does not have the language to describe and debate the vital component of urban life that is lived on the streets of cities and towns. This book presents a nuanced argument for a new vocabulary of the city, proposing a way of analysing the materiality of the urban that captures the ever-changing element of human experience. The book looks at urban life in India with a fresh perspective that incorporates the everyday and the unstructured.
