Description

The perceived failure of late Twentieth Century place-making led to a rethink among urban designers that today puts sustainability at the heart of contemporary policy. Theories about what this means abound, often pointing to the architecturally ebullient, close-grain building typologies found in flourishing historic town centres. How can the designer replicate these patterns to meet the needs of modern society in all its diversity?

In this book, Tarbatt explains his practical plot-based urbanism to answer this question. Set in the context of design guidance, planning policy, regulations, financial considerations, development models and commercial realities, the book extracts broad strategic design parameters for the masterplanner. Key chapters on designing and detailing the plot are organised by block type and offer critical design data, while the guidance is supported throughout by lively illustrations and numerous international case studies.

Aimed at masterplanners, architects and landscape architects as well as local authorities, town planners, urban geographers and developers, the book is a manual for making more sustainable places.
