New Towns : An Investigation on Urbanism, Paperback / softback Book

New Towns : An Investigation on Urbanism Paperback / softback


The enormous increase of urbanisation characterising the 20th century often overlays the architectural approaches that took place when cities were founded and continue to have an effect into the present day.

Many cities have been newly planned and built from the ground up and relevant new towns' yards are open in Asia and Africa.

What they all have in common is the search for a new urban beginning. The aim of ambitious programs in the forthcoming decades should especially be a better control of the growth of metropolises and urbanised regional patterns, with a view to the environmental behaviour of people.

This book, which not only presents fundamental international planning features, examines factors such as location, size and layout in particular, as well as the spatial value of new metropolises.
