Rethinking Masterplanning: Book Launch
July 17, 2017 @ 18:15 - 20:30 BST
To celebrate the publication of Rethinking Masterplanning: Creating Quality Places, which The Academy of Urbanism has endorsed, ICE Publishing would like to invite Academicians and Young Urbanists to a book launch and evening drinks reception.
Today’s complex systems of development require an integrated approach for dealing with changes in place to bring desired longer-term impacts and benefits, and become the basis of future professional development practice. Edited By Academician Husam AlWaer AoU and Barbara Illsley, Rethinking Masterplanning explores new holistic approaches to masterplanning that aim to address the unpredictable nature of development, and accommodate elements of change in a socio-demographic context. This book reviews the latest debates, research and practice and includes expanded discussions of key areas such as adaptive and synergistic masterplanning, collaboration and co-production in masterplanning, and typological and plot based masterplanning.
