Jessen, Johann; Meyer, Ute; Schneider, Jochem; Wüstenrot Stiftung (Hg.)

The authors of " Urbanity and the Planning Culture in Europe" conducted meticulous local research on the European cities of Copenhagen, Manchester, Almere, Amsterdam, Leipzig, Zurich, Sarajevo and Barcelona, seeking to understand the factors influencing urban development in Europe and present the individual planning strategies in place today.

Their analyses focus on the role of urban planning as part of the ever-shifting phenomenon known as “the city”, examine the differences between action plans and concepts in Denmark, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Spain and spotlight the protagonists of urban development.

Numerous photographs, designs and maps complement the text. " Urbanity and the Planning Culture in Europe" offers a fascinating comparison of European urban planning, explaining the different perspectives and strategies while drawing out commonalities in the future of urban development.
