  • Extrastatecraft
    Extrastatecraft (English, Paperback) Keller Easterling

    Extrastatecraft is the operating system of the modern world: the skyline of Dubai, the subterranean pipes and cables sustaining urban life, free-trade zones, the standardized dimensions of credit cards, and hyper-consumerist shopping malls. It is all this and more. Infrastructure sets the invisible rules that govern the spaces of our everyday lives, making the city the key site of power and...

  • Town and Country Planning in the UK
    Town and Country Planning in the UK (English, Paperback) Barry Cullingworth, Vincent Nadin

    Town and country planning has never been more important to the UK, nor more prominent in national debate. Planning generates great controversy: whether it's spending £80m and four years' inquiry into Heathrow's Terminal 5, or the 200 proposed wind turbines in the Shetland Isles. On a smaller scale telecoms masts, take-aways, house extensions, and even fences are often the cause of local conflict....

Drawing on the complexity sciences, social physics,...

  • Sprawl Repair Manual
    Sprawl Repair Manual (English, Paperback) Galina Tahchieva

    Sprawl Repair Manual demonstrates a step-by-step design process for the re-balancing and re-urbanization of suburbia into more sustainable, economical, energy- and resource-efficient patterns. As Galina Tachieva asserts in this exceptionally useful book, sprawl repair will require a proactive and aggressive approach, focused on design, regulation and incentives.   Sprawl Repair Manual draws on more than two decades of practical experience in the field of repairing and building communities to analyze the current pattern of sprawl development, disassemble it into its elemental components, and present a process for transforming them into human-scale, sustainable elements. The techniques are illustrated both two- and three-dimensionally, providing users with clear methodologies for the sprawl repair interventions, some of which are radical, but all of which will produce positive results.

For decades, the planning academy has acknowledged a major disconnect...
