Item description for Legible Cities: Empowering People in Urban Spaces by Spencer de Grey Tim Fendley...
Urban regeneration is a key element in addressing 21st century issues such as sustainability, social inclusion, opportunity, and quality of life. Progress depends more than ever on the empowerment of the individual citizen. The key to using that power is information. But how do you make cities legible? Tim Fendley, one of Britain's leading information architects, developed his approach in cities such as Bristol and Milton Keynes, and is currently advising Transport for London on the development of a coordinated strategy for London. In this study, Fendley explains the issues, principles, and methodologies that play a part in such thinking, with examples from projects in the UK and elsewhere. A must for urban planning and information design professionals all over the world---and since its central thesis is accessibility for the citizen, it is of interest also to everyone who cares about how we face the challenges of urban development in the coming years.
