The Urban Design Reader


Price: Rp621 000


Book Description
The Urban Design Reader brings together some of the most
influential writing on the historical development and contemporary practice
of urban design. Emerging as a distinct field of environmental design
practice in the late 1950s, urban design bridges the fields of
architecture, planning, landscape architecture, civil engineering, urban
development, and social science -- with a focus on physical form and the
social use of space. Among university programs, the design professions,
interest groups and city governments around the world, the practice of
urban design is recognized as a means of addressing 21st Century urban
challenges. As planning and development processes have become more
participatory in recent years, the number of people interested in improving
the design of their cities and neighborhoods has also grown. The timeliness
of The Urban Design Reader parallels recent public interest in making
better cities and urban places.

This anthology includes forty-one selections that illuminate the history,
theory and practice of urban design. In addition to classic writings from
the field's luminaries, such as Jane Jacobs, William H. Whyte, and Kevin
Lynch, The Urban Design Reader provides recent material on the urban design
aspects of contemporary urbanism, place-making, density, sustainability,
neighborhood planning, traffic calming, green infrastructure, and the
public realm. The readings are organized into eight topical sections
beginning with historical precedents, continuing with a variety of
theoretical and pragmatic concerns, and concluding with material on current
professional practice. The sections begin with introductory essays that
contextualize and situate major themes within the field. In addition,
introductions for each selection highlight important lessons emanating from
the literature, as well as biographical information on the authors and
suggested supplemental reading.

The Urban Design Reader provides a set of essential readings that will be
valuable to design and planning students, public decision makers and design
professionals. For those interested in the design of our neighborhoods,
towns and cities, these selections offer an indispensable intellectual and
practical foundation for the urban design field. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
