I love the three-part format of the book: how to spot clues to urban network infrastructure underground, at surface level, and overhead. It calls back to 19th-century depictions of cities as layered networks/spaces, from Victor Hugo describing Paris from above (in The Hunchback of Notre-Dame) and below (in Les Misérables), to street-and /5.

        The only way forward is to devise a new model of urbanism that encourages innovation and wealth creation while generating good jobs, rising living standards, and a better way of life for everyone. We must break down the barriers separating rich from poor and rebuild the middle class by investing in infrastructure, building more housing. Infrastructure is a term architects, engineers, and urban planners use to describe essential facilities, services, and organizational structures for communal use, most commonly by residents of cities and towns. Politicians often think of infrastructure in terms of how a nation can help corporations move and deliver their goods—water, electricity, sewage, and merchandise are .

        Smart cities bring together infrastructure and technology to improve the quality of life of citizens and enhance their interactions with the urban environment. But how can data from areas such as. Kate Ascher is an author and was executive vice president of the New York City Economic Development Corporation. Her book, The Works: Anatomy of a City, a textual and graphic exploration of how the complicated and often overlapping infrastructure of a modern city works, garnered wide discussion and praise when it was published.

However, a major element of the new urban infrastructure, advanced telecommunications networks, are developing in such a way that the municipal role in its development is minimal.

This book presents new information on the rapidly changing configuration of urban telecommunications. Using New York City as its point of reference, The Works takes readers down manholes and behind the scenes to explain exactly how an urban infrastructure operates.
