Item description for The Other Cities (Edition Bauhaus) by Regina Sonnabend...
Ever increasingly, Western cities are affected by international competition for business and exurban competition for residential life. Some have fortified themselves by developing unmistakable profiles--brands and business communities based on specific economic expertise. IBA Urban Redevelopment 2010, an innovative project established by Saxony-Anhalt in the face of urban attrition there, here turns its attention to political approaches for promoting those distinctive urban identities, taking as examples communities such as Magdeburg, Newcastle, Lutherstadt, Wittenberg and Santiago de Compostela. How can cities identify their individual local potentials? How can those key specialties be used to advance economic and social development? The Other Cities Vol. 4 outlines current trends of regional specialization and the techniques by which cities are developing their profiles, promoting urban distinctiveness with robust information on methods and results.
