Summary:
Bringing together a team of leading spatial theorists, this book argues that a view of environments which are confronted with discontinuous, non-linear evolving processes is more realistic than the notion that an environment is simply a planner's creation, and that recognising the 'complexity' of our environment offers an entirely new perspective on our world, our environment, planning theory and practice, and on  Read more...

Abstract:

Spatial planning is about dealing with our 'everyday' environment. This title presents various understandings of complexity and how the environment is considered accordingly. It argues that  Read more...
