Following his book Against Architecture (PM Press, 2012), Franco La Cecla explores the challenges that cities must confront in the near future. Urban planning and development has become increasingly inadequate in response to the daily realities of life in our cities. Human, economic, ethnic and environmental factors are overlooked, and anachronistic architecture prevails. A new urban science is required which can, first of all, guarantee a civil, dignified life for all - urban development which ensures the right to a humane mode of daily living, which has been and still is completely ignored.
