Sobre la vida i l’arquitectura (On life and Architecture)

Availability: In stock



Architect David Mackay invites us to delve into the understanding of the urban environment in which we live and to grasp the weight it has on our physical and psychological well-being. Based on concrete examples from Barcelona and many other cities around the world, Mackay also urges us to become aware of our responsibility as citizens in terms of the public space we build and also to demand this responsibility from our political representatives. And he does so with a human and generous eye, sharing not only his professional experience, but also his life. This was David Mackay's last book, and his legacy becomes a valuable tool for reflection on the importance of the quality of architecture and urban landscape in our lives.
