Fully Booked

‘Every time you use Google Maps, you can’t ask Siri or Alexa, “What is the most interesting way to get from A to B?” Because she’s not interested in that question. But you should be. You want to learn about the place you’re in.’

Rich with arguments that speak directly to our moment - a time when more humans live in urban spaces than ever before - Building and Dwelling (Allen Lane) draws on Sennett's deep learning and intimate engagement with city life to form a bold and original vision for the future of cities. Sennett was in conversation with Anna Minton, author of Big Capital (Penguin).
