Today the practice of urban design has forged a distinctive identity with applications at many different scales – ranging from the block or street scale to the scale of metropolitan and regional landscapes. Urban design interfaces many aspects of contemporary public policy – multiculturalism, healthy cities, environmental justice, economic development, climate change, energy conservations, protection of natural environments, sustainable development, community liveability, and the like. The field now comprises a core body of knowledge that enfolds a right history of ideas, paradigms, principles, tools, research and applications, enriched by electric influences from the humanities, and social and natural sciences. Companion to Urban Design includes more than fifty original contributions from internationally recognized authorities in the field. These contributions address the following questions: What are the important ideas that have shaped the field and the current practice of urban design? What are the major methods and processes that have influenced the practice of urban design at various scales? What are the current innovations relevant to the pedagogy of urban design? What are the lingering debates, conflicts ad contradictions in the theory and practice of urban design? How could urban design respond to the contemporary challenges of climate change, sustainability, active living initiatives, globalization, and the like? What are the significant disciplinary influences on the theory, research and practice of urban design in recent times? There has never before been a more authoritative and comprehensive companion that includes core, foundational and pioneering ideas and concepts of urban design. This book serves as an invaluable guide for undergraduate and postgraduate students, future professionals, and practitioners interested in architecture, landscape architecture, and urban planning, but also in urban studies, urban affairs, geography, and related fields.

The concept of creative industries has developed considerable academic and policy momentum in the 21st century. There has been a connection identified between the rise of creative industries and the urbanisation of the world’s population, particularly in relation to the significance of cities as sites of cultural production and consumption. Much of the work on creative industries and cities, however, has drawn upon 'imagined geographies' about the relationship between creativity and place. This collection draws together contributions that critically appraise recent urban cultural policy discourses, as well as reflecting on the role of culture and creative industries in the future development of cities. This book is based on a special issue of The Information Society: An International Journal.

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.

In The Death and Life of Great American Cities durchleuchtet Jane Jacobs 1961 die fragwürdigen Methoden der Stadtplanung und Stadtsanierung in Amerika, der "New Yorker" nannte es das unkonventionellste und provozierendste Buch über Städtebau seit langem. Die deutsche Ausgabe wurde schnell auch im deutschsprachigem Raum zu einer viel gelesenen und diskutierten Lektüre. Sie ist jetzt wieder in einem Nachdruck zugänglich, mit einem Vorwort von Gerd Albers (1993), das nach der Aktualität dieser Streitschrift fragt.

Commons - die Welt gehört uns allen! Die nicht enden wollende globale Finanzkrise zeigt: Markt und Staat haben versagt. Deshalb verwundert es nicht, dass die Commons, die Idee der gemeinschaftlichen Organisation und Nutzung von Gemeingütern und Ressourcen, starken Zuspruch erfahren - nicht erst seit dem Wirtschaftsnobelpreis für Elinor Ostrom. Commons sind wichtiger denn je. Sie beruhen nicht auf der Idee der Knappheit, sondern schöpfen aus der Fülle. Dieser Band mit Beiträgen von 90 internationalen Autorinnen und Autoren aus Wissenschaft, Politik und Gesellschaft stellt ein modernes Konzept der Commons vor, das klassische Grundannahmen der Wirtschafts- und Gütertheorie radikal in Frage stellt und eine andere Kultur des Miteinanders skizziert.
