    transcript 2015; US$ 38.16

    Verdichtung war die Maßgabe des Städtebaus der 1970er Jahre. Es entstanden Quartiere, die damals als modern und zukunftsweisend galten, heute jedoch überwiegend als abweisend empfunden werden. Karen Beckmann untersucht eine besonders prägnante Ausformung dieser architektonischen Strömung: Großwohnkomplexe. Im Mittelpunkt steht dabei die Suche nach... more...

  • The Robust Cityby Tony Hall

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 155.00

    Cities expand, upwards and outwards, and their physical structure can last a very long time, not just tens but hundreds of years. Nevertheless, they are rarely designed for expansion. Their layout does not allow for extension or for the retrofitting of infrastructure and can constrain, and often prevent, the growth and change of activities within... more...

  • The Boston Contest of 1944by Jeffry M. Diefendorf

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 155.00

    During World War II, many European government authorities and planners believed that the damage caused by bombing constituted a great opportunity to transform their cities. Even as the fighting continued, a great many plans were drawn up, and this has been the subject of much scholarship. However, what is often overlooked is wartime planning in cities... more...

  • Remaking the City Street Gridby Fanis Grammenos; G. R. Lovegrove

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2015; US$ 45.00

    Of all the elements of a neighborhood, the pattern of streets and their infrastructure is the most enduring. Given the 20th century's additions to the range of transportation means--trains, subways, buses, trucks, bicycles, motorbikes and cars--all vying for space and effectiveness, a fresh look at the streets is warranted. This book contributes... more...
