Visualizing major ‘urban world’ metanarratives

Daniel Ibañez, a member of Neil Brenner’s Urban Theory Lab, has produced a telling video for urbanNext, summarizing four major metageographical visions of the city, the urban and the world that animate contemporary discussion of world urbanization: the global-city network model, the urban-age discourse, Richard Florida’s spiky world of urban nodes of activity, and critical approaches to the idea of planetary urbanization. The visualization builds upon previous discussions in the forum ‘Reframing the world as one city’, which Daniel himself and Roi Salgueiro coordinated a few months ago.
