Every week for the foreseeable future until 2050, our cities will grow by more than one million people. Contempt for human rights and freedoms, coupled with striking inequalities in living conditions reveal one of the greatest architectural challenges of our time.
The blatant inequality of living conditions in metropolises and megacities is one of the major humanitarian challenges of our time. Architecture can never be neutral. It is called upon to recognize and fulfill its social responsibility—not only—in urban planning.
This book elucidates the connections between architecture and human rights through a vibrant collage of narratives, photos, designs, and critical dialogues.
