Marshall, Catherine, Marshall, Stephen

SUMMARY

One of the most significant recent innovations in urban planning, born of New Urbanism, is the revival or reinvention of the practice of coding - by which a set of written rules and graphical specifications are used on an area-wide basis to direct the design of individual buildings and their relationships to streets and overall urban layout.Stephen Marshall and his contributors investigate the nature and contribution of urban coding, and its merits and demerits which are conceptually distinct from, but often bound up with, the merits and demerits of conventional town planning. The book investigates different kinds of urban coding, from different geographical areas, and from a historical perspective to the present day.Marshall, Catherine is the author of 'Urban Coding and Planning (Planning, History and Environment)', published 2009 under ISBN 9780415441261 and ISBN 0415441269.
