Ideas for the City That Cares: Ezio Manzini’s new book, Livable Proximity

Below is my review of LIVABLE PROXIMITY: Ideas for the City that Cares, by Ezio Manzini (with a contribution by Ivana Pais). This review appears in the June 2022 edition of She Ji

A city that cares brings new meaning and vitality to a world exhausted by a focus on concrete, and consumption. In these inspirational pages, the word local is brought back to life by the pre-eminent social designer of our time. Ezio Manzini reveals a design practice which enhances the social, spatial, and relational qualities of the places where we live.

The publication of Livable Proximity could not be more timely. Its arrival comes at a moment when globalisation may have peaked. Larry Fink, CEO of BlackRock, said in March 2022 that “globalization is over”.
