Promotional Information

Drawing on examples from cities around the world, this book introduces and explores a range of key concepts to bridge the gap between the theory and practice of urban design.

About the Author

Kim Dovey is an architectural critic and Professor of Architecture and Urban Design at the University of Melbourne, Australia, where he has served as Associate Dean, Head of Urban Design and Head of Architecture. He has worked with government, industry and community groups and has written and broadcast widely in mass media.


Rather than telling us what to think about cities, Kim Dovey shows us how. What a valuable and unusual gift that is. With revealing illustrations and a rich array of brief texts we can read and combine as we choose, Urban Design Thinking both informs and inspires, inviting us to see and to reflect. * Karen A. Franck, Professor and Director, Joint PhD Program in Urban Systems, New Jersey Institite of Technology, USA *
This book inspires critical thinking about urban design. In a practical field such as urban design, engaged in the complex process of urban development, there is an urgent need for critical thinking and theoretical development. A book that travels along this path, therefore, is a welcome addition to the field. * Ali Madanipour, Professor of Urban Design, Newcastle University, UK *
