Trans-Europe Express : Tours of a Lost Continent, Paperback / softback Book

Trans-Europe Express : Tours of a Lost Continent Paperback / softback



Over the past twenty years European cities have become the envy of the world: a Kraftwerk Utopia of historic centres, supermodernist concert halls, imaginative public spaces and futuristic egalitarian housing estates which, interconnected by high-speed trains traversing open borders, have a combination of order and pleasure which is exceptionally unusual elsewhere. In Trans-Europe Express, Owen Hatherley sets out to explore the European city across the entire continent, to see what exactly makes it so different to the Anglo-Saxon norm - the unplanned, car-centred, developer-oriented spaces common to the US, Ireland, UK and Australia.

Attempting to define the European city, Hatherley finds a continent divided both within the EU and outside it.
