The Kent State Forum on the City: Madrid : Visions Strategies and Practices for the Contemporary European Metropolis
This project for the Kent State University, Florence Program goes beyond the traditional concept of a book: it is a manual, a tool to understand the transformation of Madrid in the past years. It will allow the reader to get to know the projects which represent such transformation and locate, classify, activate and even transform this content.As a tool to enhance conversation and exchange of knowledge, The Kent State Forum on the City: MADRID is a multi-platform project: Book + Web + App, all of them complementary and inter-connected, reflecting new trends in publishing practice through the acts of research, archive and exchange. It won't be static: it will grow by expanding its contents with new projects and transformations in the years to come. This way all the books and cities will be interconnected and will make it easier to understand transformations underway in a wider territory: Europe.
