CAIRO BOOKS's Description

Architectural Design Vol 80, No 5 September/October 2010 Profile No 207   Post-Traumatic Urbanism Guest-edited by Adrian Lahoud, Charles Rice and Anthony Burke   Urban trauma describes a condition where conflict or catastrophe has disrupted and damaged not only the physical environment and infrastructure of a city, but also the social and cultural networks. Cities experiencing trauma dominate the daily news. Images of blasted buildings, or events such as Hurricane Katrina exemplify the sense of 'immediate impact'. But how is this trauma to be understood in its aftermath, and in urban terms? What is the response of the discipline to the post-traumatic condition? On the one hand, one can try to restore and recover everything that has passed, or otherwise see the post-traumatic city as a resilient space poised on the cusp of new potentialities. While repair and reconstruction are automatic reflexes, the knowledge and practices of the disciplines need to be imbued with a deeper understanding of the effect of trauma on cities and their contingent realities. This issue will pursue this latter approach, using examples of post-traumatic urban conditions to rethink the agency of architecture and urbanism in the contemporary world. Post-traumatic urbanism demands of architects the mobilisation of skills, criticality and creativity in contexts in which they are not familiar. The post-traumatic is no longer the exception; it is the global condition.   Contributors include: Andrew Benjamin Ole Bouman Tony Chakar Mark Fisher Christopher Hight Brian Massumi Todd Reisz Eyal Weizman Slavoj Zizek   Counterpoint critics: Jayne Merkel Craig Whitaker   Encompasses: Urban conflict Reconstruction Infrastructure Development Climate change Public relations
