Perennial challenges for urban planning include the problems and the potential of old urban neighbourhoods in large cities.
This second volume of Design Academy Eindhoven's smartly edited new urban design journal takes on the Dapperbuurt neighborhood in Amsterdam – which has a well-known public market, but needs a facelift and public safety improvements – as a case study. Urban design students have come up with a constellation of interesting proposals to give Dapperbuurt a new identity.
The perfect-bound journal includes texts by experts on the theme of urban space, research materials, photos of the neighborhood and its residents, schematics and drawings, and scale models.
