This book is oriented on cities and their role in society, from the public places created in cities to the visionary and more abstract views on large scale developments. The chapter authors argue, each in their own way, how urban design can produce an answer to these questions. Furthermore, detailed insights are given into how current designers, architects, urbanists and landscape architects deal with the contemporary urban problems of our time: climate change, migration, resiliency, politics, environmental change.
This book includes chapters from leading thinkers in urban design, city development and landscape urbanism fields. The authors have included the most recent insights in urbanism ensuring that this book provides a state-of-the -art text which is both actual and timely.
