This talk reflects on the pressure of the Anthropocene and the question of the periphery. It situates the notion of the Anthropocene by reading the work of McKenzie Wark and overlays some of the ideas and practices onto the urban studies of Aldo Rossi. Rossi's analogical city is reread to address the peripheral conditions of the city and the typologies of the Anthropocene as Analogical Peripheries. I conclude with how these ideas and critical framings are a lens through which to approach critical urbanism and I talk through a suite of drawings of the periphery as critical reflective tools.
