Infrastructural Monument & Scaling Infrastructure

Infrastructural Monument details the first of two conferences organized by the MIT Center for Advanced Urbanism centered around the biennial theme of infrastructure. During the event, four panels – each featuring a designer, a developer, a policy expert, and a scholar – addressed future paths for infrastructure design and the potential to leverage infrastructure design beyond the realm of transportation of goods and labor and into the realm of culture, public space, architecture, and landscape form. The companion volume to Infrastructural Monument, Scaling Infrastructure presents the proceedings of the second and final conference of the MIT Center for Advanced Urbanism covering the biennial theme of infrastructure. In it, leading voices from politics, engineering, and design explore the phenomenon of growing and shrinking cities in response to population shifts.
