Intercultural City, Paperback (October 2007)
In a world of increasing mobility, how people of different cultures live together is a key issue of our age, especially for those responsible for planning and running cities. This book analyzes the links between urban change and cultural diversity. It offers tools for practitioners such as the 'intercultural lens', and 'indicators of openness'.
Art of City Making, Hardback (October 2006)» View all books by Charles Landry
City-making is an art, not a formula. The skills required to re-enchant the city are far wider than the conventional ones like architecture, engineering and land-use planning. This book explains how to reassess urban potential so that cities can strengthen their identity and adapt to the changing global terms of trade and mass migration.
