Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Being a disgruntled dairy cow myself, I must applaud Professor Lim’s proposal to bring creation, storage and distribution of food back to the heart of our capital city.

Just last week, a fellow bovine sister told me a parable of the miseducation of Britain’s urban youths. Apparently, when questioned where milk comes from, a certain inner-city child exclaimed that it comes from “a bottle”. I was disappointed to say the least. It’s high time that milkmen and corporate supermarket chains stop taking credit for our work. We livestock must return to the urban landscape to impart future generations with our ancient wisdom of how the world has always been. I’m told that my great-great grandfather once grazed in the pastures of London’s 'Soho' area, and I would very much like to see it.

I raise a hoof in solidarity with Professor Lim and his eco-warriors.

Format: Paperback
CJ Lim books tend to be visually stunning. Back when I was a student I was most excited by his extraordinary papercut drawing style, and appreciate his numerous green masterplans that were presented in Smart Cities and Eco Warriors as they are unusually optimistic.

Food City is great because it introduces a series of fantastic urban food scenarios by way of a visual essay, has interesting theoretical and political grounding, and an extraordinarily imaginative architectural vision for London brought to life by pages and pages of stunning line drawings.

This book would be great for students, or for architects who need reminding of their power to provoke and their responsibility regarding the city and the future.
