In an era of unprecedented mobility, people can now live and work not only in different places, but even in different countries. Binational Urbanism examines the lifestyle of these people who start a second life in a second city, in a second country, without saying goodbye to their first city. In a uniquely 21st-century diaspora, they live in constant transit between two homes and two nations.
"Binational urbanists" come from all strata of society, from the working class to the highly educated and cosmopolitan creative classes. For this volume, German architect Bernd Upmeyer interviewed people of Turkish origin living in Germany who commute regularly between cities in Germany and Turkey. From these interviews the author develops a theory of binational urbanism, concluding that it has the potential to become one of the most interesting forms of life in the 21st century.
