Where is the Soft City now?
Jonathan Raban wrote "Soft City" in 1974, when it was described as "a psychological handbook for urban survival" by the Sunday Telegraph. Although out of print in the UK for some time now, the book is still held up by many as its advice is just as immediate today as it was over 30 years ago. Tim Waterman, asks "Where is the Soft City now?" in this new millennium. Tim is an urban designer with the Central London Partnership and a lecturer at Kingston University's Landscape Architecture faculty who will lead a discussion at an event at the Royal Commonwealth Society on the 27th February 2007, one of a series of thought-provoking Conversations hosted by Andrew Stuck, Director at Rethinking Cities Ltd.
