Gregory Bracken’s research work focuses on East and Southeast Asia cities and their citizens, particularly the right to the city. More recently he studies how cities operate as nodes in networks, with a view to finding new ways of facilitating this in the future using lessons drawn from history. Gregory’s particular view on cities is informed by his interdisciplinary background in architecture, architecture theory, and planning. It is evidenced by his scholarly writing (see list below) but also by a series of popular architectural guides to cities in Asia and Europe. For a more complete profile, see here.
