<!-- missing image http://newmedia.kcrw.com/dna/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/Aerotropolis-201x300.jpg -->Gone, gone, gone are the days when a city grew up around a cathedral, or even a river or a seaport. The generator of tomorrow’s cities, according to business professor John Kasarda, is the airport. He and business journalist Greg Lindsay have expounded on this idea in their new book, “Aerotropolis: The Way We’ll Live Next.” Greg Lindsay will talk about the book at A+D Museum next Tuesday, April 5. Aerotropolis, he says, “is a book about what the world’s cities will look like as they are designed (or re-designed) according to the logic of globalization. . . a combination of giant airport, planned city, shipping hub, and business district.”
The talk will also feature Geoff Manaugh, a contributing editor at Wired UK and the founder of the popular website BLDGBLOG. Tuesday, April 5, 6-9 p.m. A+D Museum. 6032 Wilshire Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90036. RSVP here.
