The City That Never Was considers the increasingly speculative nature of contemporary urbanization by exploring the consequences of the massive building boom and bust seen in Spain between 1998 and 2008 as a lens through which to reconsider the theory, methods and agency of contemporary urban design and planning praxis.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Christopher Marcinkoski's book is a fascinating exploration of the relationships between 'volatile fiscal events' and 'speculative urbanization'.a remarkably timely study, as well as a sad assessment of how easily architectural production can become ensnared in economic forces far more powerful than humanism or design." - BLDGBLOG
"The City That Never Was reminds us-in superb detail-of the dangers inherent in greed, and the need for designers to speak the often-foreign language of economists, social scientists, and politicians." - JAE
