Placemaking : An Urban Design Methodology, Hardback Book

Placemaking : An Urban Design Methodology Hardback

Part of the Routledge Research in Planning and Urban Design series

Hardback

Description

End-users provide the most valuable perspective and insights into how public social space should function.

Much of the failure of urban settings can be related to over-structured urban environments which deterministically prescribe usage, constraining instead of enabling socio-spatial performance.

Planning decisions by specialists should be made with the participation of the end-user to minimise uncertainty as far as possible, creating enabling environments.

Placemaking: An Urban Design Methodology presents a methodology that evaluates the preferences of urban dwellers and synthesises these with the planning specialist's expertise, better representing all views.

Author Derek Thomas integrates the Sondheim Methodology with means to understanding cultural clues to create a matrix methodology that links planning primers with planning actions. A unique new tool for community planners, this book emphasises the importance of the community while taking into account the expertise of the planner in creating public spaces.
