Urban Design Futures
Routledge | 2006-09-06 | ISBN 0415318777 | PDF | Pages 198 | 33.21 MB
The last decade has seen the rise of urban design which has taken a central position in the new agendas for urban regeneration and renaissance. Urban design has moved from marginality to mainstream. The principles espoused by urban designers over the past 30 years are now accepted as key to a better urban environment and as we move towards greater sustainability, different ideas are emerging that are challenging some of the accepted urban design norms; urban design is at a watershed. Essays from an international cast of authors review progress and explore emerging ideas: should urban design reflect the future rather than recreate the past? What are the new driving forces that will shape urban living and hence urban design in the future? This book explores new concepts and points the way towards a series of urban design paradigms for the twenty-first century.
Urban Design Futures puts forward a series of provocative scenarios for directions in which urban design could evolve. These scenarios take the form of a series of 'think-pieces' on different aspects of Urban Design by leading practitioners and theorists.
