  • Urban Squares as Places, Links and Displaysby Jon Lang; Nancy Marshall

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 59.95

    To attract investment and tourists and to enhance the quality of life of their citizens, municipal authorities are paying considerable attention to the quality of the public domain of their cities – including their urban squares. Politicians find them good places for rallies. Children consider squares to be playgrounds, the elderly as places to catch-up... more...

  • Serene Urbanismby Phillip James Tabb

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Serenity is becoming alarmingly absent from our daily existence, especially within the urban context. Time is dense and space is tumultuous. The idea of the serene has gained currency in postmodern discussions, and when combined with urbanism conjures questions, even contradictions, as the two ideas seem improbable yet their correspondence seems so... more...

  • A History of Housing in New York Cityby Richard Plunz; Kenneth T. Jackson

    Columbia University Press 2016; US$ 39.99

    Since its emergence in the mid-nineteenth century as the nation's "metropolis," New York has faced the most challenging housing problems of any American city, but it has also led the nation in innovation and reform. The horrors of the tenement were perfected in New York at the same time that the very rich were building palaces along Fifth Avenue;... more...

    As a follow up to his widely acclaimed Sustainable Urbanism , this new book from author Douglas Farr embraces the idea that the humanitarian, population, and climate crises are three facets of one interrelated human existential challenge, one with impossibly short deadlines. The vision of Sustainable Nation is to accelerate the pace of progress... more...

  • The Practice Turn in Architecture: Brussels after 1968by Isabelle Doucet

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    What makes a city? What makes architecture? And, what is to be included in the discussions of architecture and the city? Attempting to answer such ambitious questions, this book starts from a city’s specificity and complexity. In response to recent debates in architectural theory around the agency and locus of critical action, this book tests the... more...

  • Routledge Revivals: The Design Professions and the Built Environment (1988)by Paul L Knox

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 155.00

    First published in 1988, this book argues that discussions of urban development often neglect to consider that much of the urban environment is designed by architects and planners, and that the particular world-view of architects and planners is crucial for the way proposals are taken up, modified and carried out. The author explores the world-view... more...

  • The Handbook of Urban Morphologyby Karl Kropf

    The Emerging Politics of (Re) making Cairo's Old Quarters examines postcolonial planning practices that aimed to modernise Cairo’s urban spaces.

  • The Architecture of Phantasmagoriaby Libero Andreotti; Nadir Lahiji

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    In a time of mass-mediated modernity, the city becomes, almost by definition, a constitutively ‘mediated’ city. Today, more than ever before, the omnipresence of media in every sphere of culture is creating a new urban ontology, saturating, fracturing, and exacerbating the manifold experience of city life. The authors describe this condition as one... more...
