In Urban Coding and Planning, Stephen Marshall and his contributors investigate the nature and scope of coding; its purposes; the kinds of environments it creates; and, perhaps most importantly, its relationship to urban planning.
By bringing together historical and ongoing traditions of coding from around the world – with chapters describing examples from the United Kingdom, France, India, China, Japan, Australia, South Africa, the United States and Latin America – this book provides lessons for today’s theory and practice of place-making.
Streets and Patterns takes up this challenge to create a coherent rationale to underpin today’s streets-oriented urban design agenda. Informed by recent research, the book looks behind existing design conventions and beyond immediate policy rhetoric, and analyses a range of first principles – from Le Corbusier and Colin Buchanan to New Urbanism.
The book provides a new framework for the design and planning of urban layouts, integrating transport issues such as road hierarchy, arterial streets and multi-modal networks with urban design and planning issues such as street type, grid type, mixed-use blocks and urban design coding.
Do Christians expect reformation? In many ways reformation has already occurred. They are living in it. They are even experiencing it as they walk into any department store and pick up a copy of the Bible for $5. Marshall shows that reformation for Josiah was finding the book of the law and then to do what the book said. But Christians have the Bible, and have biblical resources to read and study. What then does reformation mean for Christians today? They must never forget that they already have experienced a reformation. What they need is to continue the reformation already begun and pray for revival. Christians must be engaged in revival that they might be on fire with a holy zeal for the glory of God in their individual lives, family, community, church and nation being conformed to the word of God in life and godliness.
