Learning from China: The Tao of the City.
Fingerhuth, Carl.
Learning from China: The Tao of the City.
The dramatic shift in social and cultural consciousness that occurred in the last few decades left a deep imprint on the gestalt of our cities and calls for active reflection. The time has come to seek unique and creative strategies for developing urban environments and to establish a fresh relationship between the city and its surrounding landscape. Drawing on the wisdom of Taoist philosophy, "Learning from China" formulates a new and responsible approach to the challenge of caring for the continuous transformation of cities. Carl Fingerhuth is an internationally renowned expert in urban planning. He is not only Professor for Urban Planning (Darmstadt Technical University) but has also been actively involved in projects in Europe, USA, Africa and China. In this publication numerous richly illustrated examples drawn from his own practice and experience bring the author's concepts and approach to life.
