Description

This book will give confidence to those who want to challenge the status quo in the design and management of public space and provides an insight into how design strategies for new public spaces can transform our cities. Illustrated throughout with international examples of best practice, 'Revival in the Square' provides practical advice and guidance on how to build public spaces that will bring people together for a positive, shared experience of urban living. Contents Chapter One MAKING PLACE FROM SPACE focuses on the role of urban design strategies in managing the development process. It covers a broad range of topics, including politics, planning, architecture, finance, law, and project management.

Chapter Two LOCATION AND MOVEMENT - focuses on the prerequisite design feature for a city square: the right location.

Chapter Three PHYSICAL FORM AND ROBUSTNESS focus upon the physical structure of the city to help ensure that new squares can relate well to the surrounding urban context. Issues relating to location, movement, access, legibility, form, scale, and use are all discussed.

Chapter Four RENAISSANCE IN BIRMINGHAM provides a detailed case study of Birminghams urban renaissance and shows how some of the themes of this book have been delivered in reality.For more details and online booking, see www.artofcitymaking.org.
