Making People-Friendly Towns explores the way our towns and cities, particularly their central areas, look and feel to all their users and discusses their design, maintenance and management. Francis Tibbalds provides a new philosophical approach to the problem, suggesting that places as a whole matter much more than the individual components that make up the urban environment such as buildings, roads and parks. This informative book suggests the way forward for professionals, decision-makers and all those who care about the future of our urban environment and points the reader in the direction of a wealth of living examples of successful town planning.

This successful title, previously known as 'Building the 21st Century Home' and now in its second edition, explores and explains the trends and issues that underlie the renaissance of UK towns and cities and describes the sustainable urban neighbourhood as a model for rebuilding urban areas. The book reviews the way that planning policies, architectural trends and economic forces have undermined the viability of urban areas in Britain since the Industrial Revolution. Now that much post-war planning philosophy is being discredited we are left with few urban models other than garden city inspired suburbia. Are these appropriate in the 21st century given environmental concerns, demographic change, social and economic pressures? The authors suggest that these trends point to a very different urban future. The authors argue that we must reform our towns and cities so that they become attractive, humane places where people will choose to live. The Sustainable Urban Neighbourhood is a model for such reform and the book describes what this would look like and how it might be brought about.

Public Places - Urban Spaces provides a comprehensive overview of the principles and theory of urban design. This new edition reviews the latest debates, practice and research, and includes expanded discussions on key areas such as sustainability, health and inclusion. Full colour illustrations help demonstrate the application of the concepts discussed in the text, and the clear structure and holistic approach to the subject makes it suitable for dipping into or reading cover to cover. The authors explain the catalysts of change and renewal, and explore the global and local contexts and processes within which urban design as `place-making' occurs. The book presents six key dimensions of urban design theory and practice -the social, visual, functional, temporal, morphological and perceptual - and relates these to discussions of the market, regulatory processes and how urban design is communicated. This is a clear and accessible text that provides a comprehensive discussion of this complex subject.
