From the Publisher. Sourcebook of Contemporary Urban Design presents more than 300 noteworthy case studies in its 600 pages, the first large-scale book of its kind to showcase a complete and diverse range of structures worldwide. The case studies incorporate many types of urban space projects, indoor and outdoor, making this lushly illustrated, information-rich book an invaluable resource that architects and architectural students will turn to again and again.

Each case study includes a succinct description of the project at hand, listing its name, client, and location and presenting its unique objectives, challenges, and solutions. Every case study also features numerous full-color photographs and detailed renderings of site and floor plans. Finally, each case study provides a full listing of those involved in the project: the design firm and its participating architects, engineers, consultants, and contractors.
