Where are the Utopian Visionaries? features project documentation and writings by contemporary activist-architects and scholars working on socially responsible design. Produced around the world through a collaborative exchange of ideas, case studies address a range of issues, from racial segregation in Harlem, New York; to a medical clinic in Malawi; sustainable housing development in Guanajuato, Mexico; and a master plan for a system of schools and clinics in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
Edited by architect and professor Hansy Better Barraza, the book includes contributions from leading critical figures, including Michael Sorkin, Alberto Pérez-Gómez, Simón Vélez, Peter Clegg, and more. Key quotes from the texts run along page footers in enlarged type, rendering the book’s themes legibly to even the most casual reader. Aligning with its content, the book is printed on 100% recycled paper.
