From architecture to planning, four lectures for four cities: Tokyo, Milan, London and New York recounted through their social, cultural, economic and political contexts

For the second edition of The Histories of Architecture academics working in the field will be discussing through a stratigraphic reading of contemporary architecture and planning the social, cultural, economic and political contexts of Tokyo, Milan, London and New York, presenting an image as variegated and complete as possible of these four international architectural poles.
