The Management Dimension

Edited by Matthew Carmona, UCL Bartlett Claudio de Magalhaes, UCL Bartlet Leo Hammond, UCL Bartlett Public Space: The Management Dimension is a five year study on the different applications of urbanisation planning of public spaces. The research is an answer to the resentment of poor urban treatment governmental bodies have adopted by presenting both national and international solutions to problems such as excessive traffic and population density. The title also focuses on three large casestudies to highlight and debate the theoretical, historical and the natural patterns some spaces adopted without organised urbanisation. The title is an enlightening contribution to the importance of well designed urban planning for both professionals and academics. 1 October 2010 360 pp £95.00 Hardback 9780415391085
