Summary: For over 50 years, evident in cookie-cutter houses, wide, treeless, sidewalk-free roadways, mindlessly curving culde sacs and a streetscape of garage doors, urban growth, also known as urban sprawl has been extremely poorly managed. The development patterns of the last 50 years in North America are unsustainable and very expensive. As a result urban design and planning has become one of the major areas of interest and discussion in architecture today. This handbook s moreets out objectives, policies and design principles for planning new communities and re-planning existing ones. It focuses on planning by design: applying principles of urban design and physical place-making to planning problems. A series of case studies demonstrates how better plans (and consequently better places) can be created by working in three-dimensional urban design detail. less
