Zone 1|2: The Contemporary City

ZONE’s inaugural double issue examines the physical, political, and perceptual transformations redefining the contemporary city.

These transformations are explored through historical studies of transformations in the urban system, through theoretical essays which map out the evolution of related social and economic structures (such as, the state, the family, and the factory), and through experimental art projects and critical dossiers.

Some of the many contributors to this issue include: Christopher Alexander, John Baldessari, Gilles Deleuze, Peter Eisenman, Rem Koolhaas, William Labov, Michael Piore, and Paul Virilio.
