Urban Ethic by Eamonn Canniffe
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Although contemporary practice in urbanism has many sources of design guidelines, it lacks theory to provide a flexible approach to the complexities of most urban situations. The author provides that theoretical framework, looking beyond the style obsession of urban makeovers to the fundamental elements of city-making. The scope of this book takes in illuminating historical analysis and significant theoretical coherence, while recent case studies link the physical environment to the citizens within it, ultimately offering a new methodology for the analysis and design of urban spaces which encourages a balance between diversity and community.

Eamonn Canniffe teaches Design, Architectural History and Urban Design at the University of Sheffield School of Architecture. His research into the history and practice of urban design extends to the spatial development of the Italian piazza, the urban impact of twentieth century architecture and the implementation of contemporary British urban design projects.
