Item description for Learning from China: The Tao of the City by Carl Fingerhuth...

The dramatic shift in social and cultural consciousness that occurred in the last few decades left a deep imprint on the gestalt of our cities and calls for active reflection. The time has come to seek unique and creative strategies for developing urban environments and to establish a fresh relationship between the city and its surrounding landscape. Drawing on the wisdom of Taoist philosophy, "Learning from China" formulates a new and responsible approach to the challenge of caring for the continuous transformation of cities. Carl Fingerhuth is an internationally renowned expert in urban planning. He is not only Professor for Urban Planning (Darmstadt Technical University) but has also been actively involved in projects in Europe, USA, Africa and China. In this publication numerous richly illustrated examples drawn from his own practice and experience bring the author's concepts and approach to life.

Reviews - What do customers think about Learning from China: The Tao of the City?

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.
