Post-Industrial Urbanism

How do cities cope with large-scale political economic changes over which they have little control?  Having grown up in a city undergoing the pangs of deindustrialization, this question has powerful resonance for me.  A significant portion of my work explores the processes of transformation as emergent forms of capital mobility, un/re-bundling of investment, and reorganization of finance and production reshape our landscapes and built environments.  I am particularly interested in the construction of a “post-industrial imaginary” as both a response to, and further driver of, these transformations.
