The Form of Cities offers readers a considered theoretical introduction to the art of designing cities.

  • Demonstrates that cities are replete with symbolic values, collective memory, association and conflict.
  • Proposes a new theoretical understanding of urban design, based in political economy.
  • Demonstrates different ways of conceptualising the city, whether through aesthetics or the prism of gender, for example.
  • Written in an engaging and jargon-free style, but retains a sophisticated interpretative edge.
  • Complements Designing Cities by the same author (Blackwell, 2003).
