The perceived failure of late Twentieth Century place-making led to a rethink among urban designers that today puts sustainability at the heart of contemporary policy. In this book, Tarbatt explains his practical plot-based urbanism solution to this problem. Key chapters on designing and detailing the plot are organised by block type and offer critical design data, while the guidance is supported throughout by lively illustrations and numerous international case studies. Aimed at masterplanners, architects and landscape architects as well as local authorities, town planners, urban geographers and developers, the book is a manual for making more sustainable places.|
