City, Civility and Capitalism

Description du livre

This anthology explores how Architecture, Urban Planning and Trade have contributed to Civility and Political order. Using Renaissance Italy, where the first trading town was born, as a starting point, the writers bring us on a journey to modern cities and societies. How can we create urban environments where the individual can flourish? Can townscapes in their own right generate happiness, and what role does architecture and trade play in creating civilised societies?
