Urbanists can never afford to be apolitical

Great interview at Jadaliyya with Nezar AlSayyad, Professor of Architecture, Planning, Urban Design, and Urban History at the University of California Berkeley, and current editor of Traditional Dwellings and Settlements Review.

“Urbanism cannot and should not be seen as this separate arena, which only architects, planners or geographers look at. It is something so fundamental that historians who write history without looking at the built environment miss a whole set of artifacts.”
