Description

Sixty leading figures in architecture, urban design and regeneration have put their names to a challenge to the governments Urban Summit (held on 31 October to 1 November 2002 in Birmingham). The challenge is set out in this new book.

'Re:urbanism' calls for a new philosophy to underpin the urban renaissance. It points to ten defects whose solution must be at the heart of a new Charter of Urbanism. The book explains how cities are victims of specialisms; of the planning system; of bigness; of quick fixes; of unchallenged truths; of the rulebook; of one-eyed environmentalism; of the unenlightened client; of the lost street; and of the wow factor.

The radical approach of 'Re:urbanism' applies both to developing major urban sites and to the countless everyday decisions that can make or mar the quality of streets, delighting or infuriating people who live in towns and cities.
