Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Routledge urban planning books: open access for June

Christopher calls our attention to this.  Routledge, based in the UK, is one of the most active publishers in the field of urban planning.  Taylor and Francis journals are particularly rich in value.

Routledge is committed to ensuring that valuable research from the past is available in the newest and most accessible formats. As part of this commitment, we have digitized over 15,000 of our older titles that were previously only available in print. These titles span a century of research across the social sciences and humanities, and we are delighted to have made over 6,000 of them freely available to view during the month of June.

Free to view city and urban planning titles:

Just click on the titles to view the books in full.  The books are open for you to view for the entire month of June. Alternatively browse the Routledge free to view built environment catalog here.
