  • Re-imaging the Cityby Somaiyeh Falahat

    Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2013; US$ 79.13

    Somaiyeh Falahat investigates the spatial and morphological logic of pre-modern Middle Eastern and North African cities, so-called “Islamic cities”.

Thus, to know such places... more...

    The construction and operation of highways has a significant impact on the environment.

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

    The management of industrial heritage sites requires rethinking in the context of urban change, and the issue of how to balance protection, preservation/conservation, and development becomes all the more crucial as industrial heritage sites grow in number.

In many of the world’s major cities, however, public spaces like these are not a part of the everyday lives of the public. Rather, business... more...

  • Urbanism and Dictatorshipby Harald Bodenschatz; Piero Sassi; Max Welch Guerra

    Birkhäuser 2015; US$ 42.00

    Der Städtebau der europäischen Diktaturen in der ersten Hälfte des 20.
