The city is a place of hopes and dreams, destruction and conflict, vision and order. This sumptuous volume looks at the development of the mapping and representation of the city revealing how we organize the urban space. From skyline profiles, bird's eye views and panoramas, to schematic maps of transport networks and road layouts, and statistical maps that can provide information on human aspirations, cities reveal themselves in many ways. Focusing on key points in the development of urban representation, this enlightening book illustrates some of the oldest, youngest, liveliest, and most contested cities in the world.
