The much-praised Cultural Quarters returns in a revised edition, offering new case studies and new chapters on the economics of cultural quarters and the importance of historic buildings. This definitive text provides a conceptual context for cultural quarters through a detailed discussion of urban design and planning.

 

Drawing on several case studies (from Bolton; Birmingham, England; Ireland; and Vienna), Cultural Quarters positions the emergence of specific cultural areas within a historical and social context and explores the economics of maintaining these districts. The book offers a concise illustration of how cultural practice is maintained and expanded within an urban environment.
