Anthropologist Franco La Cecla will talk about his books Against Architecture and Contro l’urbanistica (Against Urban Planning which will be published in English by The Green Arcade/PM Press in 2016) in light of the recent changes in San Francisco, as well as his current projects.

Born in Palermo in 1956, Franco La Cecla is a renowned anthropologist and writer. He has taught anthropology in many European and Italian cities such as Palermo, Venice, Verona, Paris, and Barcelona. In 2005 he founded the Architecture Social Impact Assessment, ASIA, an agency that evaluates the social impact of architectural and city planning projects.

In addition he has created several documentaries, one of which, In Altro Mare (In Another Sea) won the Best Coastal Culture Film award at the 2010 San Francisco Ocean Film Festival.

Against Architecture has been translated into many languages, was published in English by The Green Arcade and PM Press in 2012 (translated by San Franciscan Mairin O’Mahony) and is now in its 3rd printing.

Admission is free.
