Perspecta 50: Urban Divides
Perspecta is a peer-reviewed journal produced annually by the Yale School of Architecture. Founded in 1952, it is the oldest architectural journal of its kind in the United States, and is internationally respected for its contributions to contemporary architectural discourse. For an issue dedicated to the theme 'Urban Divides', I contributed, with Alfredo Brillembourg and Hubert Klumpner, an essay entitled 'Separation Anxiety: Inequality and Exclusion in Athens and Cape Town'. The piece explores how historic spatial development patterns and the built form of cities can amplify or mitigate the effects of economic and social inequality.
This volume of the journal also includes contributions from Michael Sorkin, Jenny Holzer, Andrés Jaque, Studio Gang, and Tatiana Bilbao Estudio.
