J. C. Moughtin

This book offers a detailed analysis of urban design, covering the streets, squares and buildings that make up the public face of towns and cities.Exploring the street and square in terms of function, structure and symbolism, Cliff Moughtin explains the evolution of the theories upon which design methodology is based.With case studies and numerous illustrative examples, the book analyses the arrangement, design and detailing of public spaces, roadways and buildings and evaluates their role in the planning of cities. The examples are set against an historical context, from the laws of Renaissance composition to the theories of modern writers. This third edition is updated to accommodate the evolving and expanding role of the urban designer. New chapters on Sustainable Urban Design and Visual Analysis relate theory to practice, showing how the latest techniques in urban design can be applied.
