Kurzbeschreibung

After two decades of evolution and transformation, Londonhad become one of the most open and cosmopolitan cities in theworld. The success of the 2012 Olympics set a high water-mark inthe visible success of the city, while its influence andsoft power increased in the global systems of trade, capital,culture, knowledge, and communications.
The Making of a World City: London 1991 - 2021 sets out inclear detail both the catalysts that have enabled London to succeedand also the qualities and underlying values that are at play:London's openness and self-confidence, its inventiveness,influence, and its entrepreneurial zeal. London's organic,unplanned, incremental character, without a ruling design code orguiding master plan, proves to be more flexible than any plannedcity can be.
Cities are high on national and regional agendas as we all tryto understand the impact of global urbanisation and there-urbanisation of the developed world. If we can explainLondon's successes and her remaining challenges, we canunlock a better understanding of how cities succeed.
