Modernity's human-centric mindset harms non-human life and causes ecological instability in our built structures. Post-industrial cities offer an opportunity to create Post-AnthroPolis, a new city typology with equal consideration for humans, non-humans, and built structures.

The interactive manual provides a strategy to guide the re-imagining of post-industrial cities worldwide, emphasizing the importance of incorporating non-human life into city planning and design. By creating a symbiotic ecosystem that benefits all inhabitants, we can re-imagine our built structures to foster a harmonious relationship between humans and non-humans.
