Urban Reports, edited by Nicola Schüller, Petra Wollenberg and Kees Christiaanse, focuses on the changes in mid-sized cities affected by the global trends. How are these cities dealing with the frictions and potentials arising from local interests and global powers? What aims and scenarios are being depicted for urban space? What types of measures, strategies and partnerships are being chosen to achieve these goals?
The book studies six European cities: Amsterdam, Bilbao, Copenhagen, Dublin, Zagreb and Zurich. The reports document their fascinating visions for transforming their cities in the 21st century and explores the tensions between local and global. The book also contains contributions by Juan Alvaro Alayo Azcárate, Floris Alkemade, Stig L. Andersson, Kees Christiaanse, Franz Eberhard, Angelus Eisinger, Michelle Fagan, Ivica Fanjek, Carl Fingerhuth, Dick Gleeson, Jens Kvorning, Vedran Mimica, Sasa Randic, Javier Salazar Rückauer, Ton Schaap, Nicola Schüller, Christian Sumi and Petra Wollenberg.
