Urban Design in the Fragmented City

  • Peter Bishop
Part of the Contemporary Urban Design Thinking book series (CUDT)


Traditional approaches to city planning are being challenged by changes in the role of city government and expectations of citizen involvement. Incremental and tactical strategies are being pioneered as solutions to managing urban change. This poses significant questions on the relationship between city government, professional practice and universities and the ways in which we teach the next generation of urban practitioners.
