[en] London +10 focuses on London over the last 20 years, interpreting it as a ‘live city’ and speculating on the relationship between the live realm of the city and its urban fabric. In parallel to this central topic, the book will include a number of speculative projects carried out by the AA’s Diploma Unit 10 that have attempted to integrate this realm into the design of alternative urban strategies. The book addresses London by means of themes such as politics, control, crime, sex, integration, events, time, infrastructure, architecture, regeneration and terrorism. These form part of the everyday experience of London and inform the concept of Direct Urbanism. The structure of the book is governed by these specific themes and each one will be expanded by means of a topical article, a short essay and selected illustrations of related projects. The book includes a number of speculative projects carried out by Diploma Unit 10 of the internationally acclaimed Architectural Association School of Architecture.
