July 2009 / Jeremy Gaines, Stefan Jaeger / © Prestel Verlag / ISBN (en) 978-3-7913-4207-8, (de) 978-3-7913-4206-1
At a time of global warming, viable, resource-saving urban development is becoming increasingly important. Based on the firm Albert Speer & Partner’s ecologically founded projects worldwide, the two authors Jeremy Gaines and Stefan Jäger formulate a future-oriented concept for environmentally-friendly urban development, which should be exemplary for all architects. In the book, topics such as urban concentration, urban sprawl, resource conservation and new technologies are just as much discussed as the question of what can be done to regenerate cities and fill them with new life? With its creative and complex solutions, Albert Speer & Partner has for 40 years now been one of the most innovative firms in the field of urban development. They view cities, with their specific requirements, as an entity: as living space for people, as a business center for those in employment, and as a citizens’ forum. Projects in cities such as Shanghai, Baku, Cairo, Changchun, and Frankfurt are explained in the book with renderings, plans, and photographs.
