The Climax City Book is now out! Together with Shruti Hemani, I have spent the last five years working on a series of large scale, some might say obsessive, hand drawn plans of cities across the world. Initially the idea was to produce an urban atlas. However as the project progressed, the maps developed a hypothesis based on what they were learning through the process of drawing these maps. Climax City, published by RIBA publishing is the result.
There will be a series of book launches over the next few months including the following events with Shruti, who is travelling to the UK from her home in Jaipur:
Nottingham Urban Room Tuesday 1st of October
University of Manchester Wednesday 2nd of October
Manchester School of Architecture Thursday 3rd of October
RIBA Portland Place London Tuesday 8th of October
In addition to this I will be talking about the book at the following events:
The Therapeutic City Festival in Bath on 27th September
Ceramics Biennial, Spode Works Stoke Saturday 12th October.
York Design week Tuesday 29th of October
