The endless city : the urban age project by the London School of Economics and Deutsche Bank's Alfred Herrhausen Society by Richard Burdett( Book )

18 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the turn of the twenty-first century, the world is faced with an unprecedented challenge. It must address a fundamental shift in the world's population towards the cities, and away from mankind's rural roots. Over the course of two years, a group of internationally renowned professionals from a variety of different disciplines and backgrounds gathered together in six world cities to take stock of the new urban condition and to offer an approach to dealing with it. The result was a sometimes passionate, always challenging and informed debate on how architects, urbanists, politicians and policy makers can constructively plan the infrastructure and development of the endless city, to promote a better social and economic life for its citizens."--Jacket
Transforming urban economies : policy lessons from European and Asian cities by Andrea Colantonio( )

11 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 595 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cities house the majority of the world's population and are the dynamic centres of 21st century life, at the heart of economic, social and environmental change. They are still beset by difficult problems but often demonstrate resilience in the face of regional and national economic decline. Faced by the combined threats of globalisation and world recession, cities and their metropolitan regions have had to fight hard to maintain their global competitiveness and protect the quality of life of urban residents. Transforming Urban Economies: Policy Lessons from European and Asian Cities, the first in an ongoing series of research volumes by LSE Cities, provides insights in how cities can respond positively to these challenges."--Publisher website

18 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and Spanish and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Sage Handbook of the 21st Century City focuses on the dynamics and disruptions of the contemporary city in relation to capricious processes of global urbanisation, mutation and resistance. An international range of scholars engage with emerging urban conditions and inequalities in experimental ways, speaking to new ideas of what constitutes the urban, highlighting empirical explorations and expanding on contributions to policy and design. The handbook is organised around nine key themes, through which familiar analytic categories of race, gender and class, as well as binaries such as the urban/rural, are readdressed. These thematic sections together capture the volatile processes and intricacies of urbanisation that reveal the turbulent nature of our early twenty-first century: Hierarchy Productivity Authority Risk Security Informality Mobility Civility Design This is an exciting, inter-disciplinary handbook for all academics and researchers interested in contemporary urban studies

Demopolis : das Recht auf Öffentlichen Raum( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in German and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In den vergangenen Jahren wurde die Bedeutung des öffentlichen Raums als Ort politischer Auseinandersetzung und gesellschaftlicher Emanzipation auf dringliche Weise sichtbar. Protestbewegungen wie der Arabische Frühling oder die Occupy-Demonstrationen haben - medial unterstützt - zu seiner neuerlichen Aufwertung sowohl in den Augen der Bevölkerung wie auch der Institutionen geführt. So ist der öffentliche Raum zu einem von verschiedenen Interessengruppen hart umkämpften Gut geworden: von Demonstranten und Nachbarschaftsinitiativen über Sport- und Musikveranstaltungen bis hin zu Kunstausstellungen und zur Nutzung als Werbefläche. Die Fragen, was wir heute unter <<öffentlichem Raum>> verstehen, wem dieser gehört und wie wir seine sichere und kostenfreie Nutzbarkeit für die Zukunft verhandeln, stehen hochaktuell im Zentrum politischer und öffentlicher Debatten. Diesen Themen geht das Buch <<Demo:Polis>> nach, das im Zusammenhang mit einer Ausstellung der Akademie der Künste Berlin entsteht. Die Ausstellung wird kuratiert von Wilfried Wang. Das Katalogbuch stellt in Essays internationaler Experten und in Fallstudien mit Blick auf Architektur, Soziologie, Kunst und Urbanismus exemplarische Projekte vor, etwa für das Tempelhofer Feld in Berlin, den Londoner Trafalgar Square, den Campo de Cebada in Madrid oder den Brooklyn Bridge Park in New York City. Behandelt werden aber auch künstlerische Interventionen im öffentlichen Raum, die darauf abzielen, den Status quo infrage zu stellen und neue Lesarten hinzuzufügen. (Quelle: www.buchhandel.de)

Ephemeral urbanism : does permanence matter? by Rahul Mehrotra( Book )

6 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As one of the outcomes of the Ephemeral City Research Project conceived in the Harvard Graduate School of Design with the aim of bringing to light the idea that nonpermanent configurations of the urban landscape are legitimate within the discourse on cities this book describes temporary settlements from all over the world that challenge the illusion of the permanence of the urban landscape. Ephemeral Urbanism invites us to ponder over aspects of material impermanence such as dematerialization and disassembly as an integral part of the designand construction processes of cities. Ranging from the scale of the small temporary infill within the urban, to the scale of the ephemeral mega cities, this book gives an overview of hundreds of cases, analyzing settlements or configurations that are constructed for a limited period of time. Through diagrams, photographs and aerial images, this preliminary survey presents an exploration of ome interesting prototypes of flexible urban planning and design. Texts by Richard Sennett and Ricky Burdett give the appropriate framework to understand the relevance of this book."--Provider
