9788884472946: Cities: X Lines: Approaches to City and Open Territory Design

Cities: 10 Lines - A New Lens for the Urbanistic Project is the outcome of extensive research conducted at the Harvard Graduate School of Design on the methods and tools with which designers currently shape cities and open territories. Over the past three decades, new techniques in working the built environment have been deployed in multiple settings, interacting with a wide array of cultures, scales, and intensities. The book documents the most significant, worldwide case studies of each approach and traces back to precedents and references, establishing a theoretical framework and critical assessment of each line of work. Furthermore, Cities: 10 Lines serves as an additional initiative to develop a stronger potential for unprecedented forms of urbanity.
