Urban Coding and Planning free pdf Urban codes have a profound influence on urban form, affecting the design and placement of buildings, streets and public spaces. Historically, their use has helped create some of our best-loved urban environments, while recent advances in coding have been a growing focus of attention, particularly in Britain and North America. However, the full potential for the role of codes has yet to be realized. In Urban Coding and Planning, Stephen Marshall and his contributors investigate the nature and scope of coding- its purposes- the kinds of environments it creates- and, perhaps most importantly, its relationship to urban planning. By bringing together historical and ongoing traditions of coding from around the world -- with chapters describing examples from the United Kingdom, France, India, China, Japan, Australia, South Africa, the United States and Latin America -- this book provides lessons for today's theory and practice of place-making.

He is currently director of the PhD programme at the Bartlett School of Planning, where he also teaches on urban design, urban form and transport courses. Dr Marshall's principal research interests are in urban form and urban structure, and how these relate to urban design and planning. This interest encompasses topics such as streets and transport networks- urban morphology and evolution- and the use of codes for generating urban structure.
