Urban Design: The Composition of Complexity
For planning to be successful, design must mean more than simply blindly following the dictates of legislation and regulation - yet losing sight of the importance of the design process is all too often exactly what has happened. The book identifies the elements and principles of composition and explores compositional order and structure as they relate to the meaning and functionality of cities. It discusses new directions and methods, outlines the importance of both buildings and the open spaces between them.
