9780415318938: Shapers of the Urban Form: Explorations in Morphological Agency

This book systematically examines the different types of human agency - individual and collective, official, private and institutional - that have shaped the production of urban form over the last several centuries.

The essays focus on the social processes behind the patterns of built form that have been traditionally studied and the progressive interactions between the two. This evolving mix of societal forms of agency have combined at various times to shape the urban built environment. To enable historical coherence, chapters are grouped into four broad historical periods:

  • pre-modern
  • early modern
  • industrial era
  • late- and post-modern.

With over 100 black and white illustrations, Shapers of the Urban Form is a valuable mine of thought and theory for architects and urban theorists.
