Theme Cities: Solutions for Urban Problems

Wayne K.D. Davies (eds.)
(2015), Springer

During the last few decades many innovative sets of policies have been proposed for solving contemporary urban problems. They are often summarized by an adjective added to urban, city or town, such as New Urban, Resilient Cities, Just Cities, Transition Towns, Winter Cities etc., creating a new phase of urban ideas. Each chapter in this book describes the origin, character and utility of the most important of these new city themes. Examples from all over the world show how they are able to improve urban life, creating more liveable, sustainable and inclusive places, although they need to be applied in conjunction, not regarded as separate silo approaches.
