Public Places Urban Spaces provides a comprehensive overview of the principles, theory and practices of urban design for those new to the subject and for those requiring a clear and systematic guide. In this new edition the book has been extensively revised and restructured. Carmona advances the idea of urban design as a continuous process of shaping places, fashioned in turn by shifting global, local and power contexts. At the heart of the book are eight key dimensions of urban design theory and practice--temporal, perceptual, morphological, visual, social, functional--and two new process dimensions--design governance and place production. This extensively updated and revised third edition is more international in its scope and coverage, incorporating new thinking on technological impact, climate change adaptation, strategies for urban decline, cultural and social diversity, place value, healthy cities and more, all illustrated with nearly 1,000 carefully chosen images. Public Places Urban Spaces is a classic urban design text, and everyone in the field should own a copy.

This book presents a cross-cultural approach to the study of urban space from a variety of theoretical and practical perspectives. Essays written by major contributors to contemporary urban studies explore conceptual and linguistic interpretations of urban space, visual and social examinations of world cities, and policy issues in spatial analysis. Using case studies from Asia, Latin America, North America, and Europe, the authors raise important questions about space and power, processes of change, aesthetics and attitudes toward space, and social divisions expressed through urban life. This collection endorses the centrality of cross-cultural investigation and paves the way for comparative debate which will lead to new areas of urban research.

Laptops in the park, Bluetooth alerts at the bar, microchips under the dog's skin: wireless technologies like WiFi, GPS, and RFID are changing public space. The world is increasingly traversed by an electronic infrastructure and overlaid with the invisible lines of swiftly evolving alternative cultural and social domains. The traditional physical and social public domain is being supplemented by zones, places and subcultures that transcend the local to interlink with the translocal and the global. Open 11: Hybrid Space asks, "How can individuals and groups appropriate, liberate, or sculpt this hybrid, seemingly flexible space? Where is the 'public' now, and whose spatial, cultural and political strategies will shape it?"
