THE CITY ASSEMBLED SPIRO KOSTOF PDF

The City Shaped Urban patterns and meanings through history. London, Thames and Hudson, eerste editie uit , gebonden met stofomslag. Published to overwhelming critical acclaim, this classic study of cities explains how and why cities - among the most enduring and remarkable of all human artefacts - took the shape they did. Professor Kostof focuses on a number of themes - organic patterns, the grid, the city as diagram, the grand manner, and the skyline - and interprets the hidden order of urban patterns. Photographs, historical views and specially commissioned drawings vividly depict a global mosaic of citybuilding: the shaping of medieval siena; the creation of new delhi as the crown of the raj, the remodelling of moscow as the self-styled capital of world socialism and the transformation of the skyline as religious and civic symbols yield to the towers of corporate business.

Summary; Spiro Kostof. The renowned architectural historian and chronicler of urban form.

Presents a universal history of the elements of cities: streets. Public places. Urban divisions. And the borders of city and countryside. Now he follows the evolution of their components. And traces the story right up to the present. Showing how the issues remain fresh and engage with our own day. Often in unexpected ways. War and comprehensive redevelopment.

Compared with traditional patterns of incremental growth and change. This is at once an exercise in architectural and social history. A case-study for the present. And a pointer for the future. Lees volledige beschrijving Beschrijving inklappen Advertentienummer: m
