Bridging Urbanities

Reflections on Urban Design in Shanghai and Berlin

Edited by: Bettina Bauerfeind, Josefine Fokdal

Urban Design, as it is taught and practiced today, is much more than "just" designing cities. It is about understanding processes and mechanism influencing the city and its inhabitants. This book offers an oversight of a wide variety of topics that are relevant when discussing Urban Design in Berlin and Shanghai: topics reflecting what has taken place and what has been produced within the last five years of the Dual Urban Design Master Program between the two metropolises. It offers a unique mixture of articles produced by high ranked professionals and academics, as well as by ~new-comers within the field.
