According to the renowned anthropologist and architect Franco La Cecla, modern architecture has lost its way and its true function. A modern generation of 'archistars' is now more concerned with building their own brand, with little or no thought given to context and those who will actually live and inhabit the spaces that they create. Yet this is not merely a diatribe against the world for which La Cecla trained, it is also a call to rethink urban space, to take cities back from what he calls 'Casino Capitalism'.
