On the occasion of the Creative City Summit I was given a short platform at the local Pecha Kucha Night. I took the opportunity to present a very short critique of the Creative City concept. Below are my slides for the presentation.
This talk is basically a collage of ideas from (at least but not limited to) these books:
Pier Vittorio Aureli, The possibility of an absolute architecture
Mark Kingwell, Concrete Reveries: consciousness and the city
Witold Rybczynski, Makeshift Metropolis
Richard Sennett, Together: the rituals, pleasures and politics of cooperation
Richard Sennett, Consciousness of the eye
