Enables students and professionals to understand the meaning of urban design by presenting an analysis of case studies from the past 5 decades. . Illustrates how urban design guidelines and processes have been used in a broad range of projects around the world. . Helps architects and planners to define their goals and to confidently predict design outcomes. What does the term 'urban design' really mean? It has become a confusing reference with as many different interpretations as there are architects and planners. Unless design professionals can reach a clear consensus as to the nature, purpose and methods of urban design, genuine progress and development within the field is under threat. This book provides a comprehensive and accessible introduction to urban design, presenting a 3 dimensional model with which to categorise the processes and products involved. Including a broad selection of international case studies, 'Urban Design' is an essential guide to the diversity of leading projects around the globe. It not only defines the subject, but also considers the future direction of the field and what can be learned from the past.
