Today, when this tendency has become reality, Lefebvre's ideas on everyday, production of space, rhythmanalysis and the right to the city are indispensable for the understanding of urbanization processes at every scale of social practices. This volume is the first to develop Lefebvre's concepts in social research and architecture by focusing on urban conjunctures in Bangladesh, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Denmark, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, Mexico, Poland, Serbia, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom and United States. With contributions by historians and theorists of architecture and urbanism, geographers, sociologists, political and cultural scientists, this book reveals the multiplicity of processes of urbanization and the variety of their patterns and actors around the globe."@en ;
