Urban Being : Anatomy & Identity of the City - Bilingual by Robin Renner (Paperback)
About this item
There is a long tradition of comparing cities with organisms as they have similarities in their anatomy. But since cities are brought into life by the presence of people, they are less living beings than urban beings with their own identity. This is based on the behaviors, needs and requirements of the residents. Certain city structures, wherever they are, are influenced in similar ways by the people who interact with them. This volume shows and makes understandable these influences on the living environments of the inhabitants. Through detailed charts and elaborate maps generated from satelite images various city structures are compared across five different dimensions and their influence on the city's identity through the lived experience of the inhabitants is discussed.
