This book is about three different types of continuity from historic precedent to current practice in the field of urban planning and particularly that of urban design. The book begins by defining, describing and analyzing the three forms, which are: Urban conservation, Cultural tourism, and Permanencies or Persistencies of Form. The book cites examples of each such case which the author worked on. (However, cases concerning (i) the Middle East and (ii) war, disaster and disintegration, were not included here, because the author s last two books dwelt specifically upon them.) Amongst others, this book includes designs from the following towns: Urban conservation: St Petersburg, Russia; Greifswald, Germany; Banska Stiavnica, Slovakia; Cultural tourism: St Ann s Bay, Jamaica; Persistencies of Form: Telford; Thamesmead, London; Tampere, Finland; Silvertown Bridge, London; Herouville Saint Clair, Caen; Tete Defense, Paris. Numerous drawings, prepared by the author (for the greater part), are included in order to illustrate the points made by the text.
