  5. Shaping Places (August 2012)

    Review of Shaping Places
    "In the dark days of public sector retrenchment and the loss of a progressive role for planning it’s more important than ever that our understanding of place making is not forgotten. David Adams and Steve Tiesdell have spent the last decade exploring successful places. Shaping Places is the culmination of that work. In what will undoubtedly become a key text Shaping Places assembles a wide range of international research and experiences around the processes of making socially, environmentally and economically successful places." - Phil Allmendinger, Professor of Land Economy and Head of the Department of Land Economy, University of Cambridge
