Wasting Land in Urban America
Princeton Architectural Press


By Alan Berger


$27.50
Do you really know what is under that new house you just bought? How about what lies beneath the neighborhood playground? Was that "big box" retailer down your street built atop a toxic site? Will the warehouse just beyond your backyard be converted into a shopping center, factory, or trucking hub? These are just a few of the worrisome scenarios facing us all as our cities begin a stealth relocation of industrial facilities from the inner city to the urban peripheryplaces Alan Berger has coined "drosscapes." Now available in paperback, Drosscape: Wasting Land in Urban America is your guide to this vast, hitherto largely ignored field of waste landscapes.
