In October 1910 the Royal Institute of British Architects hosted the first ever international conference on Town Planning. The Transactions of this critical event in the development of planning as a profession and as a discipline were published a year later in 1911. Long out of print and very difficult to obtain, this new facsimile edition of the Transactions of the 1910 Conference now makes available – for planners and historians alike – this valuable primary resource.
Part 1. Record of the Conference Part 2. Papers and Discussions 1. Cities of the Past 2. Cities of the Present 3. City Extension and Development 4. Cities of the Future 5. Architectural Considerations in Town Planning 6. Special Studies of Town Plans 7. Legislative Conditions and Legal Studies Part 3. Exhibitions of Maps, Plans, Drawings and Models
The Studies in International Planning History series brings back to print influential texts from around the world about the study and practice of city and regional planning. The aim is to make material that is now difficult or impossible to obtain more widely available for the study of the internationalisation of planning ideas and local responses. Each book is a facsimile of the original work, (including an English translation if necessary) with an introductory essay written by an expert in the field putting the text into its contemporary and current context.
