Heritage and Sustainable Urban Transformations introduces the concept of ‘deep cities’, a novel approach to the understanding and management of sustainable historic cities that will advance knowledge about how the long-term, temporal and transformative character of urban heritage can be better integrated into urban policies for sustainable futures. Contrary to the growing emphasis on green or smart cities, which focus only on the present and future, the concept of ‘deep cities’ offers an approach that combines an in-depth understanding of the past with the present and future. Bringing together chapters that cover theoretical, methodological and management issues related to ‘deep cities’, the volume argues that using this approach will force researchers, managers and consultants to actively use the heritage and history of a city in the planning and management of sustainable cities. Exploring different definitions of ‘deep cities’, the book reveals varying and sometimes conflicting views among stakeholders concerning how, where and when the depth of a city should be conceptualized. Despite this, the book demonstrates how this new approach can help to create robust cities for the future, as new and innovative solutions are combined with the preservation and strengthening of historical features. Heritage and Sustainable Urban Transformations is the first international collection on the subject of sustainable historic cities. As such, the book will be of great interest to academics and students engaged in the study of heritage, heritage management, architecture, heritage conservation, anthropology, development studies, geography, planning and archaeology.

The reinvention of London's Grade I-listed King's Cross station by Network Rail, architectural practice John McAslan + Partners and engineers Arup is among Europe's most ambitious infrastructure projects. It has seen more than the restoration and modernization of the historic fabric of Lewis Cubitt's original double-barrelled train shed of 1852, in itself a masterpiece of rational design: the vast new semicircular Western Concourse, with its dramatic glass-and-steel canopy, creates at King's Cross one of Britain's most iconic examples of transport architecture. This fascinating book tells the complete story of the transformation of the station, a transport hub that is projected to be used by some 55 million people each year and is the gateway to the wider urban regeneration of the bustling surrounding area.

Transgender, gender variant and intersex people are in every sector of all societies, yet little is known about their relationship to place. Using a trans, feminist and queer geographical framework, this book invites readers to consider the complex relationship between transgender people, spaces and places. This book addresses questions such as, how is place and space transformed by gender variant bodies, and vice versa? Where do some gender variant people feel in and / or out of place? What happens to space when binary gender is unravelled and subverted? Exploring the diverse politics of gender variant embodied experiences through interviews and community action, this book demonstrates that gendered bodies are constructed through different social, cultural and economic networks. Firsthand stories and international examples reveal how transgender people employ practices and strategies to both create and contest different places, such as: bodies; homes; bathrooms; activist spaces; workplaces; urban night spaces; nations and transnational borders. Arguing that bodies, gender, sex and space are inextricably linked, this book brings together contemporary scholarly debates, original empirical material and popular culture to consider bodies and spaces that revolve around, and resist, binary gender. It will be a valuable resource in Geography, Gender and Sexuality studies.

Cities can be transformed by better quality public space and Revival in the Square explains how to do it. In a clear and accessible way, it provides an insight into how design strategies for public spaces can revive our cities. The book is based on real experience and provides an effective bridge between strategy and action on the ground. Endorsed by Richard Rogers, international architect and chief adviser to the Mayor of London and by Jon Rouse, chief executive of the Housing Corporation, Revival in the Square is highly relevant to anyone interested in the role of public squares in urban regeneration. The book demonstrates how uncluttered and joined up public spaces can be built to promote civic values and commercial competitiveness and how squares can bring people together for a more positive, shared experience of urban living. It gives practical guidance on creating the high quality public space that is required for an urban renaissance. Fully illustrated throughout with international examples of best practice, Revival in the Square is an important contribution that links strategy and design to the delivery of a better built environment. Revival in the Square demonstrates how the city square has always been at the heart of public urban life. In today's world, as cities compete in the global market place, their image and quality of life are increasingly important. Governments around the world are encouraging city authorities to work with the private sector to invest in regeneration and urban design - and new city squares are providing a focus for this activity. The various governmental, professional and commercial organizations involved with the design, development and management of public space have traditionally been divided into separate disciplines, resulting in a fragmented system characterized by communication gaps between the main stakeholders. Transforming Cities: Revival in the Square explains how to close the gaps through strategic leadership, management, and high quality design - all helping the delivery of an urban renaissance. The book has two main themes. Firstly, it is about how the decision-making infrastructure can be improved; secondly, it is about the physical design and management required to create and maintain sustainable public spaces. The book shows that if people are to be aware of the complexity and variety of the society they are a part of, and if they are to appreciate notions of civic identity and respect for others, there must be a place they can occasionally see and experience a diverse cross section of that society - and this is one of the key functions of the city square.
