THE CITY AS RESOURCE: TEXTS AND PROJECTS, 2005-2014. Ed. by Tim Rieniets et al. Jovis Verlag, Berlin, 2014. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 272 pp. with 279 ills. (162 col.). 27 x 19 cm. ISBN 9783868591446 In English.
Publisher's description: The City as Resource proposes a model of the city as a resource containing untapped possibilities and potentials for both individuals and society as a whole. This resource, however, is not inexhaustible; it will only be able to meet the needs of future generations if it is handled sustainably, rather than with an eye for short-term profits and partisan interests. The challenge, then, is to conceive of the city as a regenerative circuit -- a complex of spatial and aesthetic qualities that can be sustained and developed over time. The City as Resource is edited by Nicolas Kretschmann, Mark Michaeli, Tim Rieniets and Christian Salewski, and uses texts, projects and examples to present state-of-the-art urban planning methods and strategies for handling cities as resources, giving new life and new meaning to the idea of sustainable urban design.
