In the last few decades, many European and American cities and towns experienced economic, social and spatial structural change. Strategies for urban regeneration include investments in infrastructures for production, consumption and communication, as well as marketing and branding measures, and urban design schemes. Bringing together leading academics from across a range of disciplines, including Douglas Kelbaugh, Ali Madanipour, Saskia Sassen, Gregory Ashworth, Nan Elin, Emily Talen, and many others, Emergent Urbanism identifies the specific issues dominating todays urban planning and urban design discourse, arguing that urban planning and design not only results from deliberate planning and design measures, but how these combine with infrastructure planning, and derive from economic, social and spatial processes of structural change. Combining explorations from urban planning, urban theory, human geography, sociology, urban design and architecture, the volume provides a comprehensive and state-of-the-art overview, highlighting the complexities of these interactions in space and place, process and design.

Can a city be part of a sustainable ecosystem? This book deals with the complex processes of city design and the field of emergent urbanism. In times of profound urban and social change, which are transforming our systems of infrastructure and public space, this book offers a critical overview of recent trends for scholars, students and practitioners. Steffen Lehmann, Curtin University, Australia Are urban design and planning today contributing adaptive solutions to cities or exacerbating the systemic problems for them caused by climate change, digital technologies, the post-industrial economy, resource scarcity, and the widening gap between rich and poor? This is the brilliant question posed by the editors of this wide-ranging and provocative exploration of emerging urbanism. Dont expect consensus from the A-list of authors - but do expect your thinking about the professional roles of urbanists to be challenged and prepared for change! Ellen Dunham-Jones, Georgia Institute of Technology, USA The 21st century demands a different kind of architect, open to new ways of thinking about design and the role of the profession in the social, economic and political arenas. Emergent Urbanism is a timely publication that skilfully illuminates these broader forces of structural change, and reminds us that cities must ultimately respond to the aspirations and needs of the people that call them home. Alfredo Brillembourg, Urban-Think Tank/ETH Zrich, Switzerland [T]here are a number of interesting chapters, and the issues pursued are of great interest. Urban planning and design is relatively weak in theoretical framing and in situating practice within a wider context. This book can help strengthen the debate in this space. - Robin Hickman, Journal of Transport Geography
