Download The Art Of Placemaking books, In The Art of Placemaking, Ronald Lee Fleming adopts a practical approach to tackling public art and community planning in the US as they are experienced today. Through detailed, in-depth case studies he discusses the development of placemaking initiatives since 1990, accompanying beautiful and approachable examples with constructive criticism of those he sees as less successful. The case studies deal with varied project, ranging from a clock with bronze bells that marks the gateway to downtown Cincinnati to the beautification of a water treatment plant in Cambridge, Masschusetts; and from a terrazzo floor incorporating sea-creatures at Miami International Airport Florida, to a firefighters' memorial in Boston.
by John Phibbs, Place Making Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Place Making books, Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown (1716-1783) is the iconic figure at the head of the English landscape style, a tradition that has dominated landscape design in the western world. He was widely acclaimed for his genius in his own day and his influence on the culture of England has arguably been as great as that of Turner, Telford and Wordsworth. Yet, although Brown has had his biographers, his work has generated very little analysis. Brown was prolific; he has had a direct influence on half a million acres of England and Wales. The astonishing scale of his work means that he did not just transform the English countryside, but also our idea of what it is to be English and what England is. His work is everywhere, but goes largely unnoticed. His was such a naturalistic style that all his best work was mistaken for untouched nature. This has made it very difficult to see and understand. Visitors to Brown landscapes do not question the existence of the parkland he created and there has been little professional or academic analysis of his work. This book for the first time looks at the motivation behind Brown’s landscapes and questions their value and structure whilst at the same time placing him within the English landscape tradition. It aims primarily to make landscape legible, to show people where to stand, what to look at and how to see.

Download Gensler Entertainment books, "In addition to film, television, and more recently, the worldwide web, the creation of physical places has become an important part of the entertainment industry. As Robert L. Ward, creative director at Universal studios, explains in his introduction published here, the roots of entertainment development, the part of the industry most focused on such placemaking, go back to films - to the way that shots are "blocked" and stories unfold." "As this volume illustrates, entertainment development has become a fertile ground for collaborations between the creative talents within the entertainment industry and architects. Gensler, architects whose roots in entertainment include the expansion of many of its best known film and television studios, has become a prominent creative partner of the industry - one of the few forging new opportunities for architects by working across the entire process, from concept through delivery." "This volume introduces Gensler's expanded portfolio - not just studios and production facilities, but the new generation of megaplex movie theaters, urban entertainment centers, theme parks, entertainment-anchored mixed-use development, and entertainment-themed retail. Illustrated, it includes valuable commentary by Gensler architects who have become the leading specialists in these different project types."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

by Cara Courage, The Routledge Handbook Of Placemaking Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Routledge Handbook Of Placemaking books, This Handbook is the first to explore the emergent field of ‘placemaking’ in terms of the recent research, teaching and learning, and practice agenda for the next few years. Offering valuable theoretical and practical insights from the leading scholars and practitioners in the field, it provides cutting-edge interdisciplinary research on the placemaking sector. Placemaking has seen a paradigmatic shift in urban design, planning, and policy to engage the community voice. This Handbook examines the development of placemaking, its emerging theories, and its future directions. The book is structured in seven distinct sections curated by experts in the areas concerned. Section One provides a glimpse at the history and key theories of placemaking and its interpretations by different community sectors. Section Two studies the transformative potential of placemaking practice through case studies on different places, methodologies, and theoretical frameworks. It also reveals placemaking’s potential to nurture a holistic community engagement, social justice, and human-centric urban environments. Section Three looks at the politics of placemaking to consider who is included and who is excluded from its practice and if the concept of placemaking needs to be reconstructed. Section Four deals with the scales and scopes of art-based placemaking, moving from the city to the neighborhood and further to the individual practice. It juxtaposes the voice of the practitioner and professional alongside that of the researcher and academic. Section Five tackles the socio-economic and environmental placemaking issues deemed pertinent to emerge more sustainable placemaking practices. Section Six emphasizes placemaking’s intersection with urban design and planning sectors and incudes case studies of generative planning practice. The final seventh section draws on the expertise of placemakers, researchers, and evaluators to present the key questions today, new methods and approaches to evaluation of placemaking in related fields, and notions for the future of evaluation practices. Each section opens with an introduction to help the reader navigate the text. This organization of the book considers the sectors that operate alongside the core placemaking practice. This seminal Handbook offers a timely contribution and international perspectives for the growing field of placemaking. It will be of interest to academics and students of placemaking, urban design, urban planning and policy, architecture, geography, cultural studies, and the arts.

Download Placemaking Fundamentals For The Built Environment books, This book is for all those actively working in the built environment. It presents the latest theory and practice of engaging with stakeholders to co-design, develop and manage thriving places.

The art of engagement of community, government and the development industry is discussed with reference to case studies and best practice techniques. The book then focuses on the critical role placemaking has in supporting resilience and adaptability of communities and looks at issues of leadership and governance. Building on these steps for placemaking, the last parts of the book address economics, evaluation, digital and art based tools and approaches to support projects that aim to create an engaged, contributive, collaborative and active citizen.

by John Paul Kawalek, The Art Of Organisational Problem Solving Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Art Of Organisational Problem Solving books, This book explores the relationship between theory and practice in management. It enters into the debate over whether management should be taught as a set of theories to be learned ('management theory') or whether it is learned in a hands-on manner when a person is placed in a position to practice the skills of management ('management practice'). The author contends that it needs both theory and practice, and this book provides a methodological discourse about certain principles of 'organisational problem-solving.'
