    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Can conservation of the built heritage be reconciled with the speed of urban change in cities of the developing world?

  • Neoliberal Spatial Governanceby Phil Allmendinger

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Neoliberal Spatial Governance explores the changing nature of English town and city planning as it has slowly but clearly transformed.

  • New Suburbanism: Sustainable Tall Building Developmentby Kheir Al-Kodmany

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Much of the anticipated future growth in the United States will take place in suburbia. The critical challenge is how to accommodate this growth in a sustainable and resilient manner. This book explores the role of suburban tall as a viable, sustainable alternative to continued suburban sprawl. It identifies 10 spatial patterns in which tall buildings... more...

  • Urban Disaster Resilienceby David Sanderson; Jerold S. Kayden; Julia Leis

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 49.95

    Accelerating urbanization worldwide means more urban-centered disasters. Floods, earthquakes, storms and conflicts affecting densely populated areas produce significant losses in lives, livelihoods and the built environment, especially in comparison to rural areas. Poor urban dwellers, almost always the most vulnerable, too often bear the brunt. Aid... more...

  • Placemakingby Derek Thomas

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    End-users provide the most valuable perspective and insights into how public social space should function. Much of the failure of urban settings can be related to over-structured urban environments which deterministically prescribe usage, constraining instead of enabling socio-spatial performance. Planning decisions by specialists should be made... more...

  • Retailising Spaceby Mattias Kärrholm

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Over the past few years there has been a proliferation of new kinds of retail space. Retail space has cropped up just about everywhere in the urban landscape: in libraries, workplaces, churches and museums. In short, retail is becoming a more and more manifest part of the public domain. The traditional spaces of retail, such as city centres and outlying... more...

  • Resilience & the Cityby Peter Rogers

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Following the turbulent events of the first few years of the 21st century, the growth of new security and disaster measures have led to significant changes to urban design and the management of urban space. This book blends the genealogical method of Foucault with the theory of rhythms by Lefebvre to examine these changes. The spatial history of urban... more...

  • Hybridising Housing Organisationsby David Mullins; Darinka Czischke; Gerard Van Bortel

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 160.00

    Social housing has long been delivered through mixed economy mechanisms, but there has been little focus in housing studies on what this means for housing organisations themselves. This book presents recent international research applying concepts of social enterprise and hybridity to illuminate organisational behaviour in the housing sector. It addresses... more...
