Resumé

The book, split across three sections with 12 corresponding chapters, will provide the reader with a clear framework for both understanding and practicing applied urban design in a contextually responsive manner from appraisal to design delivery. The title seeks to promote urban design as a unique vocational applied discipline, delivering a precise articulation of applied urban design, providing a comprehensive reference work for readers to better appreciate the distinct practice of urban design and better understand how designers can champion and deliver contextually responsive high quality design solutions. It provides a bespoke applied urban design framework, set out across 5 stages (analysis (strategic); analysis (local); program; proposal; evaluation) to assist in this goal. The significant focus on the analysis stage (with both physical and non-physical elements) and the development of a comprehensive strategic urban design program from which to develop and test design options and proposals is unique in the field. It further identifies the role of urban design(ers) in shaping spaces and places across differing contexts through a responsive and sensitive multi-scalar approach. Each stage is supported with bespoke original graphics, illustrating a broad range of urban design visualisation techniques. The process is developed and demonstrated by the authors through a series of ‘live’ projects in the UK and Demark, in addition to a series of international urban design case studies, supplementing the descriptive with original (authors own) graphics and visuals to embed and illustrate the process in real-world scenarios. This applied process is also supplemented by a free e-learning resource, the Urban Design Toolkit, that engages and teaches the reader in relevant urban design techniques and software.

The title combines ‘why’ we design, with ‘how’ we design. The applied urban design framework acts as both scaffolding for practicing urban design, and a starting point for others to build on and engage with. It ends with a call for urban design(ers) to better consider context and the responsibilities of the profession in creating better and more responsive places and spaces.

The four authors are a selection of academics and practitioners from the UK and Denmark, working across the University of Manchester and Aalborg University.
