In October 2008 - while the collapse of Lehman Brothers threatened a global economic catastrophe - an urban research workshop was held at University College London to discuss the way space, culture and capital combine in shaping the turbulent economic landscapes of industrial cities today. The event featured a keynote from Professor Sir Peter Hall and heard new research from an interdisciplinary group of leading and emerging thinkers from across the fields of architecture, planning, economics,
geography and cultural studies.
The first issue of FIGAROPRAVDA collects the transcripts of all the talks, together with an essay and photography stimulated by the contributions. Brought together the book offers an accessible and
compelling set of perspectives on the urban causes and unfolding consequences of the great recession of 2008.
