The Situationists, who first appeared on the architectural scene in the 1960s, regarded cities as the ultimate opportunity for creative self-expression. This book offers coverage of how their tactics are currently employed in architectural and urban strategies. It features architects and educators who were first generation Situationists and also highlights some of the international practitioners involved in urban design today.
