Overview

Written to bridge the gap that exists in the approaches to urban design, Design of Urban Space addresses both the physical and social dimensions of the built environment in an integrated way. The author offers a powerful analysis of the urban design process and the nature of its product, urban space. He confronts key issues involving the confusion concerning the nature and scope of urban design and convincingly argues for a better understanding of urban design and urban space by concentrating on the intersection between the urban development process and everyday life. Interdisciplinary in concept and broad in example, this well structured and clearly written text makes use of material from around the world to bring together ideas from social thought, human geography, urban sociology, architecture, and town planning.
