Living in the Endless City

Ricky Burdett and Deyan Sudjic
Phaidon (June 2011)

In 2050, over three quarters of the world's population will live in cities. This follow-up to Phaidon's successful The Endless City is a close look at the issues that affect cities, and thus human life across the globe in the twenty-first century.

Based on a series of conferences held by LSE, Living in the Endless City examines Mumbai, Sao Paolo and Istanbul through a series of essays by global scholars and thinkers, photographs illustrating key aspects of life in the three cities, and compellingly presented analytical data.

  • Ricky Burdett is Professor of Urban Studies at LSE and director of LSE Cities and the Urban Age programme.
  • Dejan Sudjic is director of the Design Museum, London and a former dean of the faculty of art, design and architecture at Kingston University.
