Urban Design Reader by Professor Matthew Carmona

Book Description

Essential reading for students and practitioners of urban design, this collection of essays introduces the 6 dimensions of urban design through a range of the most important classic and contemporary key texts. Urban design as a form of place making has become an increasingly significant area of academic endeavour, of public policy and professional practice. Compiled by the authors of the best selling Public Places Urban Spaces, this indispensable guide includes all the crucial definitions and various understandings of the subject, as well as a practical look at how to implement urban design that readers will need to refer to time and time again. Uniquely, the selections of essays that include the works of Gehl, Jacobs, and Cullen, are presented substantially in their original form, and the truly accessible dip-in-and-out format will enable readers to form a deeper, practical understanding of urban design.

Chinese Urban Design by Professor Matthew Carmona Chinese Urban Design, Hardback (July 2013)

With the rapid development taking place in Chinese cities, there is growing conflict between this new building and the existing urban heritage. This book offers an analytic and conceptual framework for both urban investigation and consequent design.

Resilience & the City by Professor Matthew Carmona Resilience & the City, Hardback (November 2012)

Following the terrorism events of the first few years of the 21st century, the growth of a new security infrastructure has led to significant changes to urban design and the management of urban space. This book uses Lefebvre's theory of rhythms to examine these changes.
