Description

Value in the View: Conserving Historic Urban Views presents professional practitioners in planning, architecture and urban design with a resourceful, comprehensive and expert understanding of the ideas and philosophies at work in policies of view protection. It's the perfect tool to inform professionals and decision makers on the implementation of policy, design of development within historic urban contexts and offer a practical guide to the sensitive reading of historic views.

The format of the book is an academic/theoretical text with a practical side: after introducing the background to view protection, it will present a set of illustrated case studies, setting out to explain the various different methods of view protection adopted around the world and the theoretical narratives at work in each. It ends with a practical guide to assessing heritage values within urban views.
