Tobias Armborst, Professor of Art and Urban Studies at Vassar College and Principal Architect of the award winning design and planning firm Interboro Partners, discusses his book The Arsenal of Exclusion and Inclusion (Actar 2017).

"The Arsenal comes at a critical time when interest in the urban realm has moved beyond the innocence of tactical urbanism, with its ubiquitous vocabulary of parklets and bike lanes, and now includes protest movements to fight the perceived agents of gentrification.... The text ultimately embraces history over how-to. The Arsenal, then, could be thought of as an urbanist’s I Ching, but rather than divining the future, each entry tells us about where we have been and where we are right now." --Metropolis Magazine
