Planning Europe's Capital Cities : Aspects of Nineteenth-Century Urban Development Paperback
by Thomas Hall
Part of the Planning, History and Environment Series series
During the nineteenth century many of Europe's capital cities were subject to major expansion and improvement schemes - from Vienna's Ringstrasse to the boulevards of Paris. Thomas Hall examines the planning process in fifteen of those cities and addresses the following questions: when and why did planning begin, and what problems was it meant to solve?
Who developed the projects, and how, and who made the decisions?
What urban ideas are expressed in the projects? What were the legal consequences of the plans, and how did they actually affect subsequent urban development in the individual cities?
What similarities or differences can be identified between the various schemes?
How have such schemes affected the development of urban planning in general?
