14 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in English and held by 1,738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Ecology of Place, Timothy Beatley and Kristy Manning describe a world in which land is consumed sparingly, cities and towns are vibrant and green, local economies thrive, and citizens work together to create places of enduring value. They present a holistic and compelling approach to repairing and enhancing communities, introducing a vision of "sustainable places" that extends beyond traditional architecture and urban design to consider not just the physical layout of the development but the broad set of ways in which communities are organized and operate

Planning for coastal resilience : best practices for calamitous times by Timothy Beatley( )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 1,646 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this timely book, Tim Beatley argues that, in the face of such threats, all future coastal planning and management must reflect a commitment to the concept of resilience. Resilience, Beatley explains, is a profoundly new way of viewing coastal infrastructure-an approach that values smaller, decentralized kinds of energy, water and transport more suited to the serious physical conditions coastal communities will likely face. Beatley provides case studies of five U.S. coastal communities, and "resilience profiles" of six North American communities, to suggest best practices and to propose guidelines for increasing resilience in threatened communities

16 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 1,614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Biophilic cities : integrating nature into urban design and planning by Timothy Beatley( )

22 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The author not only outlines the essential elements of a biophilic city, but provides examples and stories about cities that have successfully integrated biophilic elements from the building to the regional level around the world. From urban ecological networks and connected systems of urban greenspace, to green rooftops and green walls and sidewalk gardens, Beatley reviews the emerging practice of biophilic urban design and planning, and tells many compelling stories of individuals and groups working hard to transform cities from gray and lifeless to green and biodiverse."--Publisher
Green cities of Europe : global lessons on green urbanism by Timothy Beatley( )

24 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 1,578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the absence of federal leadership, states and localities are stepping forward to address critical problems like climate change, urban sprawl, and polluted water and air. Making a city fundamentally sustainable is a daunting task, but fortunately, there are dynamic, innovative models outside U.S. borders. Green Cities of Europe draws on the world's best examples of sustainability to show how other cities can become greener and more livable. Timothy Beatley has brought together leading experts from Paris, Freiburg, Copenhagen, Helsinki, Heidelberg, Venice, Vitoria-Gasteiz, and London to illustrate groundbreaking practices in sustainable urban planning and design. These cities are developing strong urban cores, building pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure, and improving public transit. They are incorporating ecological design and planning concepts, from solar energy to natural drainage and community gardens. And they are changing the way government works, instituting municipal "green audits" and reforming economic incentives to encourage sustainability. Whatever their specific tactics, these communities prove that a holistic approach is needed to solve environmental problems and make cities sustainable. Beatley and these esteemed contributors offer vital lessons to the domestic planning community about not only what European cities are doing to achieve that vision, but precisely how they are doing it. The result is an indispensable guide to greening American cities."--Publisher description

Catastrophic coastal storms : hazard mitigation and development management by David R Godschalk( Book )

6 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Planning for earthquakes : risk, politics, and policy by Philip Berke( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Until recently experts who studied risks, both natural and technological, focused mainly on how to avoid them. Today, with a growing awareness that certain natural risks are simply unavoidable, the emphasis is shifting toward ways of planning for them and of mitigating their consequences. High on any list of unavoidable natural risks is earthquake. In Planning for Earthquakes Philip R. Berke and Timothy Beatley examine the experiences of 260 earthquake-prone communities across the United States, from the West Coast to the East. They give special attention to three areas of especially high risk--Palo Alto, California; Salt Lake County, Utah; and the lowlands of South Carolina (including historic Charleston). Berke and Beatley address topics that include citizen safety, ways of determining and maintaining the structural integrity of old and new buildings, mapping of quake-prone areas, and land-use (where to limit development). They also study the ways in which planners, politicians, and community residents can best work together in the decision-making process for earthquake planning. The authors conclude that the greatest successes have been achieved when technological considerations are counterbalanced with consideration of the values and preferences of those most at risk--the residents of quake-prone areas. Planning for Earthquakes will interest students and scholars of hazards management as well as land-use planners and government officials

After the hurricane : linking recovery to sustainable development in the Caribbean by Philip Berke( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In After the Hurricane, Philip R. Berke and Timothy Beatley present state-of-the-art research on recovery programs that work - programs that provide immediate aid to victims and also lay the basis for sustainable development and growth." "Drawing on three years of extensive field research on Jamaica, Antigua, Montserrat, and St. Kitts and Nevis, Berke and Beatley offer detailed analysis of the effects of two recent major hurricanes - Gilbert in 1988 and Hugo in 1989. While focusing on postdisaster recovery, the authors also explore the opportunities offered by the recovery period for strengthening local institutions to provide for long-term social, economic, and physical development. They show how economic aid can be channeled beyond immediate needs to help provide long-term development initiatives. And they suggest ways of rethinking traditional approaches to aid and recovery programs in ways that offer a solid foundation for future growth."--Jacket

Blue biophilic cities : nature and resilience along the urban coast by Timothy Beatley( )

11 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a growing recognition of the contact we need with nature to be happy, healthy and to lead meaningful lives. We need that nature daily, if not hourly, and so it must be nearby to where we live and work. This is central to the concept of 'biophilic cities' which is emerging as a global movement and guiding framework for city design and planning. Blue Biophilic Cities is about the promise of this movement and a kind of biophilic urbanism that is possible for cities perched on the edge of harbours and seas. In blue biophilic cities, much of the ne arby nature is to be found in the marine realm. This book explores the efforts underway in a number of cities to foster new marine connections through a variety of innovative programs and initiatives. It also discusses a number of design ideas, from dynamic shoreline edges and floodable parks to living breakwaters, in order to emphasise the possibility of designing for resilience while also supporting marine biodiversity and strengthening biophilic connections to the marine world. .--
