Neotraditional town planning responds to the crisis of the contemporary city with clear and well-organized spaces whose atmosphere is marked by public spirit, identification, and order. In four parts, this book articulates guidelines for the planning of new cities, the development of new urban neighborhoods, the restructuring of city centers, and the expansion of cities and urban neighborhoods.Drawing on firsthand experience and examples from the work of the firm Krier Kohl, it offers a detailed account of the path that leads from morphological conception through the various phases of the town-planning design process all the way to execution. A broad spectrum of architectural realizations by practitioners as varied as Michael Graves, Cesar Pelli, and Kohn Pedersen Fox demonstrates that neotraditional town planning can work together productively with architectural conceptions that are stylistically very different. The accompanying essays round off a well-designed and well-printed volume. (DISP, ETH Zurich)

Softcover edition of the popular book on tradition-oriented town planning Neotraditional town planning responds to the crisis of the contemporary city with clear and well-organized spaces whose atmosphere is marked by public spirit, identification, and order.

(DISP, ETH Zurich) Auf die Krise der heutigen Stadt antwortet der neotraditionelle Stadtebau mit dem Entwurf uberschaubarer Orte, deren Atmosphare von Gemeinsinn, Identifikation und Ordnungsangeboten gepragt ist. In den vier Teilen des Buches werden Leitlinien fur die stadtebauliche Komposition von neu gegrundeten Stadten, den Neubau von Stadtquartieren, die Umstrukturierung von Stadtzentren sowie Erweiterungen von Stadten und Stadtvierteln dargestellt. Aus erster Hand wird an Beispielen des Buros Krier Kohl detailliert der Weg vom morphologischen Konzept uber die verschiedenen Phasen des stadtebaulichen Entwurfs bis hin zur Ausfuhrung gezeigt. In der architektonischen Umsetzung durch so unterschiedliche Architekten wie Michael Graves, Cesar Pelli und Kohn Pedersen Fox wird deutlich, dass der neotraditionelle Stadtebau mit stilistisch sehr unterschiedlichen Architekturauffassungen fruchtbar zusammenwirken kann. Die erganzenden Essays runden einen gut gestalteten und gut gedruckten Band ab. (DISP, ETH Zurich). Seller Inventory # LIB9783764375584
