Cultural Quarters : Principles and Practice, Paperback / softback Book

Cultural Quarters : Principles and Practice Paperback / softback

Edited by Simon Roodhouse

Paperback / softback


 The much-praised Cultural Quarters returns in a revised edition, offering new case studies and new chapters on the economics of cultural quarters and the importance of historical buildings.

This definitive text provides a conceptual context for cultural quarters through a detailed discussion of urban design and planning.

Drawing on several case studies (from Bolton, Birmingham, Ireland and Vienna), Cultural Quarters positions the emergence of specific cultural areas within a historical and social context and explores the economics of maintaining the respective districts.

The book offers a concise illustration of how cultural practice is maintained and expanded within an urban environment.
