The second instalment of the Place + Urbanism series considers the crisis in the city, looking back on how 17 cities faced different crises since 1755. A short history of each crisis, with detailed maps and illustrations of the solutions, show how each place made profound changes, hoping to shape a safer future. For example, Lisbon, Tokyo, and New Orleans reconfigured its architecture and city planning in the wake of natural disasters (fire, flooding, or earthquake). Financial hardship led to creating more economic opportunities and safer transport to jobs in Medellín from its slums, while Berlin regained its centre after the Berlin Wall tumbled down.
