9780393733686: The Urban Design Handbook: Techniques and Working Methods (Second Edition)

The go-to guide for the practice of sustainable urbanism, updated to include new case studies and analytic tools.

This invaluable guide, brought up to date in its revised edition, offers an introductory course in urbanism and provides an operations manual for architects, planners, developers, and public officials. Based on Urban Design Associates’ in-house training procedures, this unique handbook details the techniques and working methods of a major urban design and architecture firm.

Covering the process from basic principles to developed designs, the book outlines the range of project types and services that urban designers can offer and sets out general operating guidelines and procedures for: developing master plans, including techniques for engaging citizens in the design process and technical analysis to evaluate the physical form of regions, cities, and neighborhoods; preparing implementation tools such as pattern books, form-based codes, and design guidelines to guide the development of projects throughout the life of construction; implementing contextual architectural design, including methods of designing culturally and environmentally appropriate buildings that reinforce the urban design intent within specific areas of the master plan.

About the Author:

Urban Design Associates is a Pittsburgh-based national practice that creatively engages citizens to revitalize city neighborhoods, transform public housing, bring new life to downtowns and waterfronts, and build new traditional towns.

Review:

“What sets this work apart from other urban design handbooks is its detailed description of process and its emphasis on graphic design. . . . The handbook communicates process, methods, and techniques through effective use of high-quality graphics related to projects completed by the firm. This work updates the 2003 edition with new case studies and discussion of graphics software options. Recommended.”
