Urban Villages and the Making of Communities

Synopsis

Urban regeneration is currently at the forefront of the political and professional agenda worldwide. There is a growing desire to identify and deliver solutions that not only define models of sustainable and identifiable urban form, but also underpin a real sense of a vibrant community. The design philosophy of Urban Villages has gained significant weight with government policy-makers, planners, designers and developers and is becoming a popular model in achieving a successful and flexible urban renaissance.

This book documents both the roots of the Urban Village movement and its application in contemporary society. A series of essays by eminent practitioners offers particular urban perspectives. A detailed compendium of successful case-studies provides clear technical information.

Urban Villagesand the Making of Communitiesoffers a professional resource, a teaching tool and learning aid.
