Vertical - The City From Satellites to Bunkers
Public lecture by Professor Stephen Graham, Newcastle University, UK

By May 3, 2019 Stephen Graham has been named ‘Honorary Doctor’ to the Faculty of ICT and Design, Aalborg University. To celebrate this Professor Graham gave a public lecture open to all interested. Stephen Graham is Professor of Cities and Society at Newcastle University's School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape. He has an interdisciplinary background linking geography, urbanism and sociology.

Since the early 1990s Prof. Graham has explored how cities are being transformed through remarkable changes in infrastructure, mobility, digital media, surveillance, security, militarism and verticality. His ten books include Splintering Urbanism; Telecommunications and the City (both with Simon Marvin); the Cybercities Reader; Cities, War and Terrorism; Disrupted Cities: When Infrastructures Fail; Infrastructural Lives (with Colin McFarlane); Cities Under Siege: The New Military Urbanism, and lately the critically-acclaimed Vertical: The City From Satellites to Bunkers.
