Public Places - Urban Spaces provides a comprehensive overview of the principles and theory of urban design. This new edition reviews the latest debates, practice and research, and includes expanded discussions on key areas such as sustainability, health and inclusion. Full colour illustrations help demonstrate the application of the concepts discussed in the text, and the clear structure and holistic approach to the subject makes it suitable for dipping into or reading cover to cover. The authors explain the catalysts of change and renewal, and explore the global and local contexts and processes within which urban design as `place-making' occurs. The book presents six key dimensions of urban design theory and practice -the social, visual, functional, temporal, morphological and perceptual - and relates these to discussions of the market, regulatory processes and how urban design is communicated. This is a clear and accessible text that provides a comprehensive discussion of this complex subject.Built Environment, 25(1), 11a€“17 Cuthbert, A R (2007) Urban design: Requiem for an era a€“ Review and critique of the last 50 years, Urban ...
