معرفی کتاب مقررات شهری : چگونه ضوابط بر فرم شهر تاثیر می گذارند.
از اولین بار که کتاب « مقررات شهری : چگونه ضوابط بر فرم شهر تاثیر می گذارند » را در دست گرفتم حدود 9 ماه می گذرد. این کتاب از دیدگاهی متفاوت با آنچه تا امروز مطالعه کرده بودم نشان می دهد که چگونه مقررات ساخت شهر از گذشته تا کنون مورد استفاده قرار گرفته اند. در واقع این کتاب چگونگی تاثیر مقررات بر بر شخصیت کالبدی شهر را روایت می کند. نمونه های مطالعاتی این کتاب تا جایی که در خاطر من مانده باشد تمام از ایالات متحده...
'Urban Design: Health and the Therapeutic Environment' demonstrates how urban design and planning impact on public health and sustainable development. Moughtin et al. explore the concept of what makes a physically and psychologically 'healthy' environment in the context of the paramount need for new homes where living standards are not compromised, in increasingly crowded cities.
• Sets out the history and development of the healthy city, from the English spa town to standards of care in Cuba to provide a context for modern urban health development.
• Covers a wide range of environmental, ecological, health and epidemiological issues.
• Case studies and examples show how health policy and procedure is practically applied to sustainable urban development.

This book explores sustainable development and green design in relation to urban structure and built form.
The subject matter of this book is the pattern or structure of the city: it concentrates particularly on the organisation of the public realm. The book aims to relate the main component of urban design to a general theory or urban structuring with a
strong design emphasis but within the general field of sustainable city development. Any discussion of urban design that does not address environmental issues has little meaning at a time of declining resources, ozone layer destruction and fears of the greenhouse effect. The book therefore discusses built form, street block, quarter, city centres and city structure in terms of energy conservation and sustainability.
This book will be valuable in raising awareness and generating debate as...
This book deals with a wide range of techniques used in the urban design process. It is invaluable for architecture, planning, landscape and surveying students and will also help professionals in the day to day practice.
A method of urban design is developed which has sustainability and environmental protection at the centre of its philosophy. Previously, literature regarding the urban design method has been almost totally neglected; this book introduces the topic to the reader.
A number of techniques are illustrated by example or case study. Where techniques are discussed they are located within the structure of the design process. The book develops a logical framework for a process, which includes problem definition, survey, analysis, concept generation, evaluation and implementation. It is this framework which is presented here as a...
Published as a companion volume to 'Urban Design: Street and Square', this new book from Cliff Moughtin, Taner Oc and Steven Tiesell focuses on decorating the city; how ornament has been used to bring delight to the urban scene.
The authors show how the pattern and distribution of street and square and other major elements in the city can be enhanced by the judicious use of decoration are outlined to bring together the ideas discussed and to show how ornament and decoration can be used to emphasize the five components of city form: the path, the node, the edge, the landmark and the district.
Cliff Moughtin is Emeritus Professor of Planning at the University of Nottingham. He is a trained architect who has specialized in urban design since the 1960s. He was Professor of Planning at The Queen's University, Belfast prior to his appointment as...
This is a practical guide to producing graphics for urban design projects and planning. Through illustration and narrative, the authors demonstrate how urban regeneration has inspired a growth and mixture of graphic techniques for communicating a projects vision.The guidance includes various methods for producing hand-rendered or computer-generated visuals and details the entire planning process, from community consultations to final reports.
With a practical approach to theory, Designing the City of Reason offers new perspectives on how differing belief systems and philosophical approaches impact on city design and development, exploring how this has changed before, during and after the impact of modernism in all its rationalism.
Looking at the connections between abstract ideas and material realities, this book provides a social and historical account of ideas which have emerged out of the particular concerns and cultural contexts and which inform the ways we live. By considering the changing foundations for belief and action, and their impact on urban form, it follows the history and development of city design in close conjunction with the growth of rationalist philosophy. Building on these foundations, it goes on to focus on the implications of this for urban development,...
Urban Design provides a comprehensive and accessible introduction to urban design, presenting a 3 dimensional model with which to categorise the processes and products involved. It not only defines the subject, but also considers the future direction of the field and what can be learned from the past. 50 international case studies demonstrate the variety of urban design efforts that have occurred in recent history.
