Beschreibung

"The Form of Cities "offers readers a considered theoretical introduction to the art of designing cities.
Demonstrates that cities are replete with symbolic values, collective memory, association and conflict. Proposes a new theoretical understanding of urban design, based in political economy. Demonstrates different ways of conceptualising the city, whether through aesthetics or the prism of gender, for example. Written in an engaging and jargon-free style, but retains a sophisticated interpretative edge. Complements "Designing Cities" by the same author (Blackwell, 2003).

Pressestimmen

'The Form of Cities is an important critique and synthesis of recent thinking about urban design ... a powerful analysis of the emergence, logic, and political meaning of the built environment in given historical contexts.' Allen J. Scott, Distinguished Professor of Public Policy and Geography, UCLA 'A major achievement in the radical spirit of Manuel Castells' and Mike Davis' writings. Cuthbert repositions urban design theory ... to reveal the bedrock systems of material and symbolic production shaping modern cities.' Chris Abel, Architectural critic and author of Architecture, Technology, Process and Architecture and Identity 'Truly an impressive piece of work. ... This book will become seminal not only for urban design students and practitioners, and those engaged in the study and practice of urban policy-making and planning, but also for students of urban geography and political science.' Harry T. Dimitriou, Bartlett Professor of Planning Studies, UCL "[Cuthbert] sets out not only to make the professional case for urban design but also the disciplinary case. What ensues is an immense and far-reaching catalog of ideas that in many ways is a tour de force." Journal of Regional Science
