Becoming Urban

The story told in this book is not just about Mongolia. In the 21st century, the urgencies of the climate crisis and global viral pandemics mean that questions of why and how we live together, are just as raw and urgent to the contemporary urban condition as they are to Mongolia. How architects, planners, communities, and politicians grapple with the effects of urbanization on climate change is a critical issue facing the twenty-first century. The ways in which this process comes to be materialized and organized spatially, and by whom, will have profound ramifications for the climate and the social and economic makeup of our cities. In response, this book advocates that architecture is a social act and affirms the architect’s vital contribution to the process of becoming urban.
