In a planning study that closes the trilogy Homo faber in society, following The Craftsman and Together, Richard Sennett shows how Paris, Barcelona and New York took on their modern form and guides us through the emblematic places of contemporaneity, denouncing the global diffusion of the “closed city”, segregated, regimented and subjected to anti-democratic control.
According to Sennet there is another way of building and inhabiting cities. In the “open city”, residents actively put their differences in play and create a virtuous interaction with urban forms. In order to construct and inhabit this city we need to practice a certain kind of modesty: living as one among many, involved in a world that does not reflect only oneself.
