Description:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: City making is an art, not a formula. Conventionally, city making is considered primarily in terms of architecture, engineering and land use planning. This book offers new insights by integrating the arts of understanding human desires, bending the dynamics of economics to the city's needs, trading power for creative influence, triggering inspiration, moving forward without erasing memory, celebration, and much more. Most importantly, the author recognizes city making as adding value and values simultaneously in everything undertaken. Together, the mindsets, skills and values embodied in these arts help make places out of simple spaces. Following the widespread success of The Creative City, this new book explains how we can understand and reassess urban potential, helping cities to strengthen their identity and adapt to the changing economic dynamics, global terms of trade and mass migration. Aided by international case studies, the author examines deeper fault-lines, paradoxes and strategic dilemmas that make creating the 'good city' so difficult and crystallizes how urban psychology can be used in decision making.

Synopsis: City-making is an art, not a formula. The skills required to re-enchant the city are far wider than the conventional ones like architecture, engineering and land-use planning. There is no simplistic, ten-point plan, but strong principles can help send good city-making on its way. The vision for 21st century cities must be to be the most imaginative cities for the world rather than in the world. This one change of word - from 'in' to 'for' - gives city-making an ethical foundation and value base. It helps cities become places of solidarity where the relations between the individual, the group, outsiders to the city and the planet are in better alignment. Following the widespread success of The Creative City, this new book, aided by international case studies, explains how to reassess urban potential so that cities can strengthen their identity and adapt to the changing global terms of trade and mass migration. It explores the deeper fault-lines, paradoxes and strategic dilemmas that make creating the 'good city' so difficult.

About the Author: Charles Landry is founding director of COMEDIA, a cultural planning consultancy. Author of the highly influential The Creative City (Earthscan, 2000), he is an international authority on city futures and the use of culture in city revitalization.
