‘Presents serious issues in a way which neither patronises or mystifies the lay reader.’ Paul Keating on Three Houses
A blueprint for the future of our city in a radically changing world.
Columnist Elizabeth Farrelly brings her unique perspective as architectural writer and former city councillor to a burning question for our times: how will we live in the future? Can our communities survive pandemic, environmental disaster, overcrowding, government greed and big business?
Using her own adopted city of Sydney, she creates a roadmap for urban living and analyses the history of cities themselevs to study why and how we live together, now and into the future.
Killing Sydney is part-lovesong, part-warning: little by little, our politics are becoming debased and our environment degraded. The tipping point is close. Can the home we love survive?
