- We can order this
Urban Transformations examines the crucial issues relating to how cities are formed, how people use these urban environments and how cities can be transformed into better places. Exploring the links between the concrete physicality of the built environment and the complex social, economic, political and cultural processes through which the physical urban form is produced and consumed, Ian Bentley proposes a framework of ideas to provoke and develop current debate and new forms of practice.

'This is an extraordinarily rich book that attempts to fill a large gap in current literature between the "how to design" books of the design professionals and the critical thinking of the social sciences. Ultimately, because of the ground that it covers, this book deserves to be widely read.' - TPR
'An intriguing, absorbing read, bringing together a myriad of ideas.' - Environment and Planning: Planning and Design
