"What makes a city endure and prosper? In this masterful survey of a thousand years of urban architecture, Wolfgang Braunfels identifies certain themes common to cities as different as Siena and London, Munich and Venice ... Braunfels describes scores of cities, classifying them as cathedral cities, city-states, imperial cities, maritime cities, "ideal cities" (those towns which, planned by often absent rulers for a specefic purpose, failed to develop independent lives) ... Lavishly illustrated with city plans, bird's-eye views, early renderings, and modern photographs, Urban Design in Western Europe will both delight and instruct architects, urban planners, historians, and travelers."--Page 4 of cover
Mittelalterliche Stadtbaukunst in der Toskana by Wolfgang Braunfels( Book )

43 editions published between 1953 and 2012 in German and Undetermined and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Standardwerk zur Idee der Stadt als einheitlichem "Bauwerk" mit Mauern, Kirchen, Palästen, Straen und Brücken wurde vor sechzig Jahren konzipiert und ist von der Wissenschaft bis heute nicht überholt. Zugleich ist es aus Sicht von Architekten eines der wichtigsten Lehrbücher zur Stadtbaukunst. Wolfgang Braunfels (1911-1987) widmete sich in langjährigen, durch den Zweiten Weltkrieg unterbrochenen Archivstudien der Baugenese von Florenz, Siena und Pisa, Lucca, San Gimignano, Pienza, Volterra, Cortona und anderen Städten der Toskana, deren Baugesetzgebung er auswertete. Er begründete damit eine stadtgeschichtliche Forschung, die dem Wachstum der Städte, ihrer baulichen Struktur, inneren Ordnung und ihrem ästhetischen Gefüge als Gemeinschaftswerk aller Bürger Aufmerksamkeit widmet. Widerrufen wurde damit das romantisch geprägte Bild einer zufällig "gewachsenen" Stadt des Mittelalters. Die Neuausgabe ergänzt der Sohn des Autors, der Architekt und Städtebauer Stephan Braunfels
