Icebergs, Zombies and the Ultra Thin
(1000 items available)
The global financial crisis of 2008 revealed the damage done by unchecked housing speculation, yet in the ensuing years, the use of architecture as an investment tool has only accelerated, heightening inequality and contributing to worldwide financial instability. From pencil towers to iceberg homes to zombie urbanism, this title issues an indictment of how finance capitalism changes not only architectural forms, but the very nature of our cities and societies.
