To build a city in Africa : a history and a manual Rachel Keeton, Michelle Provoost, 2019
In To Build a City in Africa, the authors explore the complex implications of the New Towns phenomenon in Africa with in-depth case studies of five African New Towns as well as essays that elaborate specific issues connected to New Towns development. An atlas places these developments within a broader geographical and historical context, examining related aspects such fertility, mortgage rates, and car ownership. The conclusions of the research are presented in the Manual, a set of ten design and planning principles. The Manual offers an alternative approach for planners, developers and other decision-makers aiming to construct more inclusive and sustainable New Towns in Africa.
Across theory and practice : thinking through urban research Monika Grubbauer, Kate Shaw 2018
How does theory relate to practice? How should practice inform theory? Scholars all over the world struggle with these questions, particularly in urban research which offers simultaneously a field of deep theory and a very practical place of work. For the study of contemporary urban development in all its complexity, these questions are of utmost importance. The experiences of urban crisis require action that is informed, guided and grounded to improve living conditions. The contributions to this book explore the dynamics that shape urban theories and professional practices today. Drawing on rich experiences in research, policy and practice in various global contexts, the authors give reflective and personal accounts that provide insights into the ways in which urban researchers make use and sense of theory.
