About the Book

Making a well drawn design is not enough. Designers have to work with coalitions and alianties, time and process, ecology and economy. They have to be clever, with a broad vision. This new approach doesn't need to be boring. It can make fun. And be sexy.

Green metropolises: developing older cities and rural non-places into tasty green housing landscapes. Examples in Germany, Belgium and Algeria. The tradition of IBA, Olympic Games and World expo's: how exhibitions contribute to sustainable spatial quality. Acupuncture in London: a catalogue of ideas to renew old districts. The concept of Hollands Green Heart: how to revitalise an old planning concept. American artists vs Dutch engineers. Water as the engine of change. Essay: survey before plan, design as an exploration. The changing position of the architect. Portrait: Kees Christiaanse: urban designer in Holland and China. Christiaanse seems to play with urbanism, using informal rules as a design instrument.

Ein guter Entwurf allein reicht nicht aus. Designer müssen mit Koalitionen und Bündnissen arbeiten, mit Zeit und Prozessen, mit Ökonomie und Ökologie. Sie müssen geschickt sein und eine Vision haben. Dieser neue Ansatz muss nicht langweilig sein. Er kann Spaß machen - und sexy sein.
