Urban Design as Craft: Eleven Conversations and Seven Projects 1999-2011 = Stadt Bau Als Handwerk: Elf Gespräche Und Sieben Projekte 1999-2011 [Book Review]

Gta Verlag (2011)

In eleven pointed and sometimes provocative conversations, architect and professor of architecture, Vittorio Magnago Lampugnani uses a critique of contemporary urban planning to develop principles for reestablishing the discipline. In seven projects designed with these principles in mind, he shows how his vigorous reinterpretation of the field can be implemented and what a fresh start can look like. Magnago Lampugnani envisages a calm modern city that can measure itself against the historic city, while emphasizing sustainability and providing a home for a multifaceted and continually changing society
