Item description for Learning from China: Das Tao der Stadt by Carl Fingerhuth...

Die starken Vernderungen des gesellschaftlichen und kulturellen Bewusstseins der letzten Jahrzehnte in der Gestalt der Stadt mssen aktiv reflektiert werden: Erforderlich ist ein neues Verhltnis zwischen Stadt und Land und die Suche nach neuen Methoden und Verfahren beim Stdtebau. "Learning from China" zeigt einen neuen, verantwortungsvollen Umgang mit der stndigen Transformation der Stadt: die Bedeutung des Taoismus fr den heutigen Stdtebau. Zahlreichen Beispiele aus der Praxis des Autors in der Schweiz, Europa, Afrika und China veranschaulichen seinen Ansatz und werden durch Plne, Skizzen und farbige Abbildungen illustriert. Carl Fingerhuth gilt als international ausgewiesener Fachmann fr Stdtebau. Er ist Professor fr Stdtebau an der TU Darmstadt und hat in vielen Lndern Europas, in den USA, Afrika und China gearbeitet. Von 1979 bis 1992 war er Kantonsbaumeister von Basel.

Reviews - What do customers think about Learning from China: Das Tao der Stadt?

Connecting Worlds  Feb 2, 2005
This book went straight to my heart! Fingerhuth has masterfully connected the ancient philosophy of Taoism with the needs of today's modern urban cities. In a fresh, innovative and personal way, he takes us to a place "beyond" modernism, to a new consciousness of the intimate relationship between our urban environments and their surrounding landscapes. This book proposes a gestalt for the city of today that takes into consideration the sensitivities, complexities and idiosycrasies of the post-modern human being. I highly recommend this book to the city-dweller who longs for a more human envoronment in which to live but also to the urban planner whose job it is to create urban spaces in which we can live, breathe and begin to feel at home.
Exceptional work  Jan 25, 2005
This book illustrates how each time and society expresses the core values of its philosophy in the way it develops cities. The many fantastic pictures visualize the concepts of the book in a thought inspiring manner. For me this book was a journey through time and around the world, accompanied by the personal experience and philosophy of the author, which felt like having a personal talk and discussion.
