A highly visual reference tool, this handbook provides comparative information about major urban extensions and masterplans around the world. It places an important new emphasis on the processes and structures that influence urban form, including public or private landownership, management and funding. Each of the book's 20 subjects is rigorously analysed through custom-made diagrams, to-scale drawings and descriptive texts, which are complemented by key statistics and a wealth of photographs. Presented in order of size rather than date or geographical location, the case studies provide intriguing insights and enable design professionals, developers and city planners, as well as students of architecture and urban design, to make informed organisational and formal comparisons. European projects from the 19th century to the present day are featured, including Belgravia in London, Sarphatipark in Amsterdam, Potsdamer Platz in Berlin, La Défense Seine Arche in Paris and Hammarby Sjöstad in Stockholm. A further selection of non-European examples presents Stuyvesant Town in Manhattan as a historic case study, as well as more recent or ongoing masterplans such as Puerto Madero in Buenos Aires, Downtown Dubai and the New Central Business District in Beijing.
