About this product
- DescriptionThe Form of Cities offers readers a considered theoretical introduction to the art of designing cities. * Demonstrates that cities are replete with symbolic values, collective memory, association and conflict. * Proposes a new theoretical understanding of urban design, based in political ecomy. * Demonstrates different ways of conceptualising the city, whether through aesthetics or the prism of gender, for example. * Written in an engaging and jargon-free style, but retains a sophisticated interpretative edge. * Complements Designing Cities by the same author (Blackwell, 2003).
