Khrónopolis: Accessible City, Feasible City

Have you ever asked yourselves if the shape of your city changes in relation to the time of day and the mode of transport used? I assure you it is true and I will try to prove it in this essay examining some of the world’s main metropolis: Barcelona, Berlin, Bogotà, Istanbul, Johannesburg, London, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Milan, New York, San Paolo and Tokyo. And who has never wondered if the rapid growth of large urban agglomerations could turn into a nightmare? I believe that it can be turned into a hope, if we know how design a city able to guarantee essential rights of urban civilization to everyone, among which is the mobility right, always and everywhere. Khrónopolis embodies this ideal and represents a city model that liberates the competencies and creativities of town planners, architects and urban sociologists. A city where it’s easier to move, it’s better to live. The book is improved by notes, texts and interviews with Andy Bow, Ricky Burdett, Norman Foster, Guido Martinotti and Renzo Piano.
