In a world where forecasting seems futile, where predictions are unreliable, and where even the most absurd scenarios are plausible, many urban planning decisions seem to be governed not by vision - but by fear. Fear of disaster, fear of change, fear of the unknown. Can we learn from 'fear'? Can we even use it as a guide for spatial planning? 'City Shock' explores ten innocent 'what ifs'. What kinds of radical trend breaks can we expect, and with what effects? Guided by fantasy rather than science, this book imagines how each of these scenarios could play out in the Dutch landscape between 2018 and 2047. In a narrative composed of (im)possible headlines, a chain of fictitious newspaper spreads reports these events, exposes their possible causes and depicts their potential consequences for Dutch spatial planning and lifestyle.

Dalla quarta di copertina:

In een wereld waarin voorspellen zinloos lijkt, prognoses onbetrouwbaar en zelfs de meest absurde scenario's denkbaar zijn, lijken veel planologische beslissingen niet te worden ingegeven door visie maar door angst. Angst voor rampen, voor verandering, voor het onbekende. Kunnen we van angst leren? Kunnen we die zelfs gebruiken als leidraad voor ruimtelijke planning? In City Shock worden tien onschuldige 'wat als'-vragen gesteld. Welke radicale trendbreuken kunnen we dan verwachten, en met welke gevolgen?
In dit boek, dat eerder berust op fantasie dan op wetenschappelijke inzichten, wordt beschreven hoe elk van deze scenario's zich tussen 2018 en 2047 in het Nederlandse landschap zou kunnen voltrekken. Met behulp van (on)mogelijke headlines wordt in een reeks fictieve krantenpagina's verslag gedaan van de gebeurtenissen, met levendige beschrijvingen van mogelijke oorzaken en gevolgen voor de Nederlandse ruimtelijke ordening en onze manier van leven.

Descrizione libro Netherlands Architecture Institute (NAi Uitgevers/Publishers), Netherlands, 2013. Paperback. Condizione: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. In a world of seemingly ever-increasing instability, many urban planning decisions seem to be governed not by vision, but by fear--fear of disaster, of change, of the unknown. What can we learn from this state of affairs? Can such fear be made beneficial? Is it conceivable that 'fear' might even offer a kind of guide in matters of urban planning? Guided by fantasy and invention rather than science, City Shock: Planning the Unexpected proposes ten 'what if' scenarios, imagining how each of these scenarios could play out in the Dutch landscape between 2018 and 2047. In a narrative composed of feasible but unlikely headlines, a series of newspaper-style spreads report on fictitious future catastrophic events, exposing possible causes and consequences. City Shock is the sixth book in Winy Maas' Why Factory's Future Cities series. Codice articolo ART9789462080072
