Schenk, Leonhard. Designing Cities: Basics, Principles, Projects

Birkhauser. 2013

Book ID: 94138

Urban design is based on planning and design principles that need to meet functional demands on the one hand, but on the other hand bring the design elements together into a distinctive whole. Although designs are almost always dominated by the spirit of the times, the basic compositional principles are, for the most part, timeless. Designing Cities examines the most important design and presentation principles of urban design, using selected historical examples and con-temporary international competition entries.
