Creating Neighbourhoods and Places in the Built Environment Summary

Creating Neighbourhoods and Places in the Built Environment by David Chapman

This design primer examines the forces at work in the built environment and their impact on the form of buildings and their environments. The actions of a range of individuals and agencies and the interaction between them is examined, exploring the competing interests which exist, their interaction with physical and environmental forces and the uncertain results of both individual and corporate intervention.

Creating Neighbourhoods and Places in the Built Environment Reviews

"The format is very reader-friendly...Anyone teaching courses that are concerned with urban place, for whatever discipline or professional qualification, would do well to review Creating Neighbourhoods. - Local Government Neighbourhoods

"...the book represents a good first port-of-call for students interested in the broad processes at work in the production of quality built environments." - Journal of Urban Design

'...very accessible and...easy to read... Each chapter is begun with a clear introduction to the topic that is dealt with, and the key issues to be discussed are identified...it is refreshing to find a book that is rich in examples taken from provincial cities, and in which London is not emphasised at the cost of everywhere else.' - 'Environment and Planning, 1998
