Working Cities: Architecture, Place and Production, by Howard Davis

Cities have historically supported production, commerce, and consumption, all central to urban life. But in the contemporary Western city, production has been hidden or removed, and commerce and consumption have dominated. This book is about the importance of production in the life of the city, and the relationships between production, architecture, and urban form. It answers the question: What will cities be like when they become, once again, places of production and not only of consumption?

Through theoretical arguments, historical analysis, and descriptions of new initiatives, Working Cities: Architecture, Place and Production argues that contemporary cities can regain their historic role as places of material production—places where food is processed and things are made. The book looks toward a future that builds on this revival, providing architectural and urban examples and current strategies within the framework of a strong set of historically-based arguments.

The book is illustrated in full color with archival and contemporary photographs, maps, and diagrams especially developed for the book. The diagrams help illustrate the different variables of architectural space, urban location, and production in different historical eras and in different kinds of industries, providing a compelling visual understanding for the reader.

White Stag Block, White Box

Join Craig L. Wilkins, Pietro Belluschi Distinguished Visiting Professor in Architectural Design and Fellow in Design for Spatial Justice, for a talk on "The Age of the Activist Architect." The lecture is free and open to the public.

The Pietro Belluschi Distinguished Visiting Professorship in Architectural Design was created at the UO School of Architecture and Allied Arts (now the College of Design) in 1993 as a perpetually endowed fund to foster and promote education in architectural design. Pietro Belluschi (1899-1994), one of the most notable architects in Oregon, was best known for establishing a Northwest regional style. The endowment supports a short-term appointment for a prominent architect to teach and lecture.
