3 stars

In Le Droit à la Ville, Henri Lefebvre states that everyone has a right to the city, that is, a right to live and enjoy the urban life of the cities.

The city is not an equal place to everyone: those that can afford to live in the city are presented with an urban rhythm and closeness to markets, offices and cultural places. Those that cannot afford to live in the city are pushed back to the dormitory suburbs, which have very limited resources. This idea is deeply explored in the book, as to explain why everyone is entitled to living in the city.

I found Lefebvre’s writing to be hard to understand at times and his line of thought is not always easy to follow either. I believe the reader should have some previous knowledge on sociology and anthropology of space and on the Marxist ideology (which is a constant presence) before reading this book.

A more erudite reader on these subjects would, perhaps, understand and appreciate this book more than I did.

Nonetheless, anyone who works or studies urban planning and architecture should take some time to read this book.
