Description - Creating Neighbourhoods and Places in the Built Environment by David Chapman
Current changes and pressures to transcend professional barriers throughout the construction industry are being reflected in the way built environment education and training is now planned and designed. Courses are focusing on aspects which are common to all the subjects to foster a multi-professional approach and lead to a better collaborative practice. The Built Environment Series of Textbooks (BEST) provides texts which are relevant to more than one course and addresses areas of commonality in an original and innovative way. Learning aids in the texts - chapter objectives, workpieces and checklists - will test your understanding. A clear structure to each chapter makes it easy for you to follow and absorb the information. Essential for tomorrow's architects, planners, quantity surveyors, landscape architects, building surveyors, housing managers and estate managers. Creating Neighbourhoods and Places in the Built Environment examines the forces at work in the built environment and their impact on the form of buildings and their surroundings.
The book looks at the competing interests between individuals and agencies which exist, their interaction with physical and environmental forces and the results of their intervention. It shows how buildings, spaces and human activities combine to create a lively and enjoyable environment.
