Trans-Europe Express: Tours of a Lost Continent by Owen Hatherley



ISBN: 9780141991573 Category: Tags: ,


Over the past twenty years European cities have become the envy of the world: a Kraftwerk Utopia of historic centres supermodernist concert halls imaginative public spaces and futuristic egalitarian housing estates which interconnected by high-speed trains traversing open borders have a combination of order and pleasure which is exceptionally unusual elsewhere. In Trans-Europe Express Owen Hatherley sets out to explore the European city across the entire continent to see what exactly makes it so different to the Anglo-Saxon norm – the unplanned car-centred developer-oriented spaces common to the US Ireland UK and Australia. Attempting to define the European city Hatherley finds a continent divided both within the EU and outside it.
