Urban design futures( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Urban Design Futures puts forward a series of provocative scenarios for the 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. Essays from an international group of authors review progress and explore emerging ideas. Should urban design anticipate the future rather than recreate the past? What are the new driving forces that will shape urban living and 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."--Jacket
