Seeing the Better City

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

In order to understand and improve cities today, personal observation remains as important as ever. While big data, digital mapping, and simulated cityscapes are valuable tools for understanding urban space, "using them without on-the-ground, human impressions risks creating places that do not reflect authentic local context. Seeing the Better City brings our attention back to the real world right in front of us, focusing it once more on the sights, sounds, and experiences of place in order to craft policies, plans, and regulations to shape better urban environments. Through clear prose and vibrant photographs, Charles Wolfe shows those who experience cities how they might catalogue the influences of Urban form, neighbourhood dynamics, public transportation, and myriad other basic city elements that impact their daily lives. He then shares insights into how they can use those observations to Contribute to better planning" and design indecisions. "Wolfe calls this the' "urban diary" approach, and highlights how the perspective of the observer is key to understanding the dynamics of urban space.He concludes by offering contemporary examples and guidance on how to use carefully recorded and organised observations as a tool to create change in urban planning conversations and practice.From city-dwellers to elected officials involved 'in local planning and design issues, this book is an invaluable tool for constructive, creative discourse about improving urban space.
