New from Actar, Requiem collects essays by critic and theorist Sanford Kwinter. The binding subject is the new role of the city, constituting, in the words of the author, a warning of what may come. Opening with Paris, Kwinter tours the world before ending the book at New York’s Ground Zero.

Sanford Kwinter is Professor of Architectural Theory and Criticism and co-Director of the Master of Design Studies program at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design.
