On Planning – A Thought Experiment

Edited by David Chipperfield / Simon Kretz

This publication is the result of a year-long dialogue between David Chipperfield and Simon Kretz. Its aim is to positively affect the future of urban developments, providing a manifesto for a relational, collective and diverse future for our cities.
