Rome: A New Planning Strategy

Front Cover
Taylor & Francis, Feb 3, 2004 - Architecture - 208 pages
Rome: A New Planning Strategy looks at the problems of a city over the last century and suggests a totally new planning strategy. The book examines the stages that have marked the increase of population and change in land use and analyses the masterplans used to try and control these evolving conditions. Using Rome as an extended case study, the book deals with the socio-economic effect of an absence of planning strategy during the recent growth of the city. The author presents the characters and features of a new masterplan based on his many years of experience in theoretical and practical planning.
