Made in Taiwan


Architecture and urbanism of the knowledge economy in the Far East.

ISBN: 9788895623658 Categories: , Tags: ,


The book oscillates between the description of a specific place, namely Taiwan, and a broader reflection on the relationship between space and certain modes of production. Taiwan represents the exceptional case of a country in which the disjunction between state and society, together with a certain autonomy of the economy from politics, allowed explosive economic development and large improvements in society. If the knowledge economy is establishing a new global production paradigm today, Taiwan offers the opportunity to reflect on the spatial implications. Not only but also, if the rapid modernization process that characterized the island was accompanied by the development of a particular form of urbanization, Taiwan offers ground to investigate the urban specificity of the productive spaces of knowledge economy.
