Architectural Design and Regulation by Robert Imrie( Book )

12 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Regulations and associated governance practices, relating to the design of the built environment are an integral part of the design process and warrant serious attention by scholars of urban design. The regulations that condition the building process are neither ephemeral nor insignificant yet they have barely been the subject of academic investigation. Governments are placing increasing emphasis on design codes, building regulations, and planning statements to guide the conduct of architects, and to fashion much more of the design process but there has been little research on what architects feel and think about this, and how it is affecting what they do and their daily patterns of work. The book offers insights into a number of important relationships: the impact of regulations on architects and their designs; the use of regulations to create or sustain shared bodies of knowledge and common understanding between different actors (i.e. designers, contractors, regulators); and, the social issues of how risk is shared (between designers and the state) for creating and ascertaining that the minimum (design) conditions are satisfied. The book develops two lines argument: 1. Regulation is core to architects' practices, and, in turn, such practices define, in part, the scope and possibilities of regulation. If one accepts this proposition, it seems incumbent on research to centre the understanding of architects' practices within the broadcloth of the rules and regulations that, in turn, are part of the broader contexts within which architecture unfolds. 2. While conceptions of design may preclude explicit incorporation of regulations and building standards, such standards do influence, in variable ways, aesthetic and/or design outcomes. Regulations ought to be conceived of as much more than technical instruments, or part of a non-creative process somehow removed from architects' practices."
The knowledge business : the commodification of urban and housing research by Chris Allen( Book )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a critique of the knowledge business, and describes and evaluates its different manifestations in, and impacts on, the university sector. Its focus is the social sciences and, in particular, housing and urban studies. Drawing on a wide range of experiences, both in the UK and elsewhere, it illustrates the changing management of the academy, and the development, by university managers, of instruments or techniques of control to ensure that academics are disciplined in ways that are commensurate with achieving commercial goals. The individual chapters highlight the different ways in which the academy is being put to work for commercial gain, and they evaluate how far the public service ethos of the universities is coming apart in a context in which what is to be serviced is increasingly a private clientele defined by their 'ability to pay'. "The Knowledge Business" examines the contradictions and tensions associated with these processes, highlighting the implications for the academic labour process, and the future of the academy

With an ever increasing proportion of the world's population inhabiting urban environments, the management of cities remains a perennial challenge for governments and policymakers. This concise, but wide-ranging text makes sense of the multiple ways in which urban issues and problems have been defined and addressed in different places at different times. From initiatives that focus on social tensions within the urban realm, to those which seek to develop cities as economic entities, the book provides an accessible discussion and critique of some of the key approaches that have characterised urban policy across the globe. Providing case studies of urban policy actions, explanations of key concepts, and succinct chapter summaries, this unique introductory text is invaluable reading for both students and practitioners who are new to the area of urban policy, and who wish to understand and assess policy responses to the challenges posed by urban living and lifestyles
