Quantum City: in a Nutshell

Quantum City explores the relationships between the history of science, urban design and the concept of the city, light-heartedly but with a very serious aim: to radically change the way the urban realm is both experienced and designed.

It proposes an easy-to-read, non-technical, and enjoyable introduction to quantum theory and the ‘new’ physics of the 20th century, as well as to the history of civilisations and the development of cities.

This introduction inspires a conceptual language that can be applied to the way we think and produce urban design, and provides powerful insights into the growth and self-organisation of cities at different scales.

Quantum Urbanism offers the missing interface between the different disciplines of the city, and promises to be a potent metaphor for the development of various trans-disciplinary theories for the 21st century city.

Challenging traditional approaches to the theory of cities, this thought-provoking book will be enjoyed by both design professionals and anyone interested in the city, its history and culture.
