In his groundbreaking book "S,M,L,XL," architect Rem Koolhaas posed the provocative question: Whatever Happened to Urbanism?

Now, in "Mutations," Koolhaas teams up with an international group of top architects and theorists to explore the myriad ways in which the city is undergoing a series of profound transformations, changes so radical that they demand a completely new discourse-about urbanism, architecture, technology, and the environment. Introduced by an eye-opening survey of statistics on global urbanization and a compilation of critical essays, "Mutations" is organized as a highly illustrated atlas of contemporary urban landscapes. The Pearl River Delta in Southeast Asia, a study by the Harvard Project on the City, directed by Rem Koolhaas, exemplifies the extreme speed of urbanization; Uncertain States of Europe, a project by Stefano Boerei and Multiplicity, looks at the end of traditional models of the city and the new realities of European cities; a survey of American cities, by Sanford Kwinter and Daniela Fabricius, reconsiders the notion of infrastructure; while Lagos, a study by Koolhaas and the Harvard Project on the City, presents a last unfamiliar territory that points the way to new forms of modernity. "Mutations" is essential reading for anyone concerned with architecture, urbanism, or cultural studies-both as a vivid portrait of the current condition of the city and as an atlas of emergent possibilites from around the globe.
