And what a book.
Influential books #74 Urban Planning and Real Estate Development by John Ratcliffe, Michael Stubbs and Miles Keeping
Now a decade on since the third edition. A really great theory-practice book at the nexus of urban planning and real estate development.
Rebalancing historical, spatial, and social considerations in the production of space. Further real and imagined dimensions are used to build a new theoretical urban frame.
Popularising the ‘Edge City’ term for growing development of commercial hub activity outside of the urban core.
Text that provides a history of urban planning in addition to some of the social and economic problems that underpin its theory and practice.
Exploring and supporting the movement for more walkable cities given the modern historical influence of the car.
A book that exerts post-modern urban planning as one that includes diversity, community and environment.
