In cities around the world, urban culture is threatened as commercial pressures overwhelm concerns for architectural integrity. Recognizing that isolated efforts at architectural renovation do not automatically restore the historic integrity of cities, planners are seeking new methods and tools to save the structure and history of cities. In this book Nahoum Cohen establishes the emerging discipline of urban conservation as crucial to the future of urban planning and to the survival of cities in the twenty-first century.
This is the first comprehensive presentation of the wide range of issues involved in urban conservation. The author examines such cities as Athens, Budapest, Istanbul, Jaffa, Jerusalem, Paris, Rome, San Francisco, Sofia, Tel Aviv, and Vienna, as well as Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, and European archeological sites. He shows how preservation is the direct result of urban conservation and how it is enhanced by in-depth knowledge of city structure and history.
