Bringing together imaginative architectural approaches with texts by key contemporary thinkers, the two-part Informal Market Worlds explores new ways to interrupt the dominant logics of neoliberal governance. The Reader includes expert essays on urban informality, bottom-up economies and informal architectures as harbingers of social and political change. Offering a global perspective on the conflicted realities of informal marketplaces--from survival activities of the urban poor to transnational clandestine trade networks--these analyses reveal how informality has become a political instrument in the struggles around global market integration.

Christchurch faces the unprecedented situation of having to rebuild its entire central city in a First World economy in the twenty-first century.

Featuring photo and written essays from journalists, citizens, politicians, students, planners, academics, publicans, artists, economists, designers and more, Once in Lifetime offers the first substantial critique and reimagining of the Government''s Christchurch Central Recovery Plan, identifies what is falling through and growing in the cracks, and presents a range of alternative approaches.

Parking Management for Smart Growth

The average parking space requires approximately 300 square feet of asphalt. That''s the size of a studio apartment in New York or enough room to hold 10 bicycles. Space devoted to parking in growing urban and suburban areas is highly contested - not only from other uses from housing to parklets, but between drivers who feel entitled to easy access. Without parking management, parking is a free-for-all - a competitive sport - with arbitrary winners and losers. Historically drivers have been the overall winners in having free or low-cost parking, while an oversupply of parking has created a hostile environment for pedestrians. In the last 50 years, parking management has grown from a minor aspect of local policy and regulation to a central position in the provision of transportation access. The higher densities, tight land supplies, mixed land uses, environmental and social concerns, and alternative transportation modes of Smart Growth demand a different approach - actively managed parking.

The planet is urbanizing at an accelerating pace. More than half of the worldÆs population now lives in metropolises. By 2030, that proportion is expected to increase to 60%. Even though many cities are unhealthy, the urban habitat seems destined to become the dominant way of life across the globe. What are the reasons for this rapid urbanization? What does it mean for architecture, society and culture? Originally published in French as La ville qui vient, The City in the Making is a groundbreaking interdisciplinary attempt to understand the nature of the urban phenomenon. Starting with the origins of the first known city, it explores the logic of its millennia-long formation in order to understand its contemporary upheavals, ongoing reconfiguration and future. The book engages with archeology, architecture, economics, philosophy and politics to explore the development of the contemporary cityscape and imagine its future development.

Conflicts around urban development and planning issues represent an important dimension of urban politics. Issues of social cohesion and democratic representation are all the more relevant in times when cities are undergoing a severe economic crisis and when local politics tends to meet its challenges with post-political responses. The relevance of local conflicts as moments of political mobilization is particularly apparent as institutions and procedures of urban politics fall short of meeting the expectations of local communities. The case-studies from cities throughout the world explore the potential of planning conflicts to raise questions about urban democracy. They point at some of its key challenges: the multi-scalar nature of urban policies; the tension between policing and politics, between institutional control and popular resistance; the spatial dimension of protest and social mobilization; the limits to institutional practices of citizen participation The volume is a contribution to rethinking

The enormous scope of the Internet can lead us to assume that as the online community grows, our world grows smaller and more cosmopolitan. In Digital Cosmopolitans, Ethan Zuckerman explains why the technological ability to communicate with someone does not guarantee human interaction or the healthy exchange of information and ideas. Combining the latest psychological and sociological research with current trends both online and off, Digital Cosmopolitans highlights the challenges we face and the headway being made in creating a world that is truly connected.

In stock: In stock

Dansk byplanlægning II, 1938-1992 er en klassiker, der første gang udkom i 1993. Den skildrer byplanlægningen fra den første brugbare byplanlov. Den tidligere lovgivning var baseret på frivillighed, men fra 1938 skulle byer over 1000 indbyggere udarbejde bindende planer. Bogen er beretningen om et samfund i omstilling til industri med en kolossal vækst, om velfærdssamfundets fremvækst, om planlæggere og myndigheders forsøg på at sikre en ligelig udvikling i landet på alle niveauer, kommunalt, regionalt og på landsplan; men også om en blind tro på fremskridtet, der i 1970erne afløstes af et mere differentieret syn på byen (ikke mindst de gamle bycentre) og om en demokratisering af planlægningen. De faglige og politiske temaer, der prægede tiden behandles foruden emner som sanering, byfornyelse, erhvervsområder, bycenterplaner m.v. og med eksempler fra hele landet.

Bogen handler om den fysiske planlægnings fremvækst og er tænkt som et forsøg på en egentlig fremstilling af planlægningens historie. Faserne opdeles i den uformelle planlægning før 1900 og den efterhånden mere og mere formelle planlægning efter 1900, med et markant brud ved -den første brugbare byplanlægningslov - fra 1938. Danmark, som vi kender det i dag, er blevet til i et sammenspil mellem uformelle og formelle beslutninger, og tilblivelsen kan følges her.
