Investigating the architecture of big form, urban villages, and special interest zones, this book is inspired by the iconic urban sites located south of the equator and elsewhere in the developing word. Inverting the direction in which knowledge has been exported since colonial times, it reveals the conceptual and performative qualities of building complexes from the Global South in order to inform unconventional approaches towards urban development in Berlin. With case studies in Singapore, Dhaka, Casablanca, Hong Kong, and São Paulo. Conceived and edited by Rainer Hehl and Ludwig Engel. Thanks to Ruby Press (Berlin).
