About This Book

Cities and towns continue to evolve and are utilizing a range of planning and design strategies in urban landscapes that focus on climate change, social accommodation and livability. All of the strategies are potential influences on future urban experience and identity. In order to produce positive results, communities are applying urban planning and design concepts based on current and future environmental prospects. The result is a range of concepts aligned with numerous planning and design standards for urban viability, now and in the future.

Urban Landscape Priorities, Opportunities and Prospect is unique in addressing current priorities and opportunities as standards for the future quality of urban landscape initiatives. A key standard is inductive, bottom-up context applications that produce livable and sustainable urban landscape contexts. Current participants in this vision are planners, designers and fine artists. The result is a text that emphasizes priorities, opportunities and potential prospects as interrelated planning and design influences on current and future urban landscapes.
