Palimpsests : biographies of 50 city districts : international case studies of urban change by Paul L Knox( )

20 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,080 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Knox' in-situ studies present 50 especially significant city districts from the whole of Europe in words and pictures. His field research focuses on typologically outstanding city districts that have developed a high degree of individuality. Cities are the symbiosis of diverse districts: the smaller units serve to provide an important identity function: business centers and amusement districts such as the City and the West End in London, technology and science quarters (Adlershof in Berlin), designer districts such as the Zona Tortona in Milan and the Fashion District in New York. Two other factors that play a major role are the conversion of industrial wastelands and new districts colored by a supranational capitalism or a sustainable or dubious planning - such as the Vauban residential quarter in Freiburg in South Germany or the Lower Ninth District in New Orleans. Paul Knox also always analyzes how and why these districts have turned out the way they are: outlining their visible and also their hidden and often blurred "biography". A fascinating journey through space and time!

13 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and Italian and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than half the world's population lives in cities, and that proportion is expected to rise to three-quarters by 2050. Urbanization is a global phenomenon, but the way cities are developing, the experience of city life, and the prospects for the future of cities vary widely from region to region. The Atlas of Cities presents a unique taxonomy of cities that looks at different aspects of their physical, economic, social, and political structures; their interactions with each other and with their hinterlands; the challenges and opportunities they present; and where cities might be going in the future
World cities in a world-system by Paul L Knox( Book )

33 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cities such as New York, Tokyo and London are the centres of transnational corporate headquarters, of international finance, transnational institutions, and telecommunications. They are the dominant loci in the contemporary world economy, and the influence of a relatively small number of cities within world affairs has been a feature of the shift from an international to a more global economy which took place during the 1970s and 1980s. This book brings together the leading researchers in the field to write seventeen original essays which cover both the theoretical and practical issues involved. They examine the nature of world cities, and their demands as special places in need of specific urban policies; the relationship between world cities within global networks of economic flows; and the relationship between world city research and world-systems analysis and other theoretical frameworks

The Design professions and the built environment( Book )

22 editions published between 1987 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Architects, building officials, contractors and other practitioners in fields related to the built environment often engage in their particular tasks as if they existed in splendid isolation from larger contexts. Seemingly discrete tasks, such as the design and construction of a shopping centre, are easy to deal with there is a beginning and an end, there are codes and guidelines to follow and when the task is over they can move on to the next one. However it is increasingly evident that every aspect of the built environment is indeed part of a larger context. No action or element exists in isolation from a larger web of activity. The challenge for educators in this field is to nurture in students an awareness of the range and interconnectedness of elements and processes that contribute to the built environment. This book aims to order the issues involved. Within the context of this general study, there are two issues whose importance deserves to be given special emphasis. The first of these is information technology the effects of which on the operations of business, government and society have yet to be properly understood. The second issue is that of the protection of our natural heritage. The impact of the worlds six billion inhabitants on the environment is clearly critical but by and large does not inform the actions of most design professionals. This textbook is a tool for better work in the built environment. It points to the experiences of others from which we can learn. Its objective is to introduce the range of issues involved in the analysis, design and production of the built environment, emphasizing the interaction between these issues

Cities and design by Paul L Knox( Book )

20 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cities, initially a product of the manufacturing era, have been thoroughly remade in the image of consumer society. Competitive spending among affluent households has intensified the importance of style and design at every scale and design professions have grown in size and importance, reflecting distinctive geographies and locating disproportionately in cities most intimately connected with global systems of key business services. Meanwhile, many observers still believe good design can make positive contributions to peopleʹs lives. Cities and Design explores the complex relationships between design and urban environments. It traces the intellectual roots of urban design, presents a critical appraisal of the imprint and effectiveness of design professions in shaping urban environments, examines the role of design in the material culture of contemporary cities, and explores the complex linkages among designers, producers and distributors in contemporary cities: for example fashion and graphic design in New York; architecture, fashion and publishing in London; furniture, industrial design, interior design and fashion in Milan; haute couture in Paris; and so on. -- Back cover
