9781138899292: Remaking Post-Industrial Cities: Lessons from North America and Europe

Remaking Post-Industrial Cities: Lessons from North America and Europe examines the transformation of post-industrial cities after the precipitous collapse of big industry in the 1980s on both sides of the Atlantic, presenting a holistic approach to restoring post-industrial cities.

Developed from the influential 2013 Remaking Cities Congress, conference chair Donald K. Carter brings together ten in-depth case studies of cities across North America and Europe, documenting their recovery from 1985 to 2015. Each chapter discusses the history of the city, its transformation, and prospects for the future. The cases cross-cut these themes with issues crucial to the resilience of post-industrial cities including sustainability; doing more with less; public engagement; and equity (social, economic and environmental), the most important issue cities face today and for the foreseeable future.

This book provides essential "lessons learned" from the mistakes and successes of these cities, and is an invaluable resource for practitioners and students of planning, urban design, urban redevelopment, economic development and public and social policy.

Review:

"Remaking Post-Industrial Cities tells the incredible story of the death and life of Rustbelt cities across America and the world. It chronicles the ways that cities like Pittsburgh and Detroit dealt with economic body blows, stabilized themselves and charted unique paths to recovery and revitalization. It is required reading for mayors, economic developers and urbanists who are seeking to understand and chart a course in our post-industrial future." –Richard Florida, author of Rise of the Creative Class, University of Toronto

"Remaking Post-Industrial Cities marks an important milestone in the conversation about urban reinvention. The case studies in this volume provide an indispensable guide that demonstrates how our cities can remake themselves for the 21st century. It is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the dynamics and challenges facing post-industrial cities today." –Joel Mills, Director, Communities By Design, American Institute of Architects

"If you care about the state and future of our legacy cities this mosaic portrait of 10 metropolises in the U.S. and Europe is essential reading. The authors unflinchingly examine problems we face, share lessons we need and ultimately challenge us to act upon this unique moment of opportunity to achieve the just, equitable cities we deserve." –Rip Rapson, The Kresge Foundation

"Don Carter’s book provides a unique comparative perspective on how cities struggle and succeed through crises: twenty researchers and practitioners are summoned to tell a tale of ten cities remaking themselves after the end of their industrial glory. Each story is rich in specific insights; all together they offer precious lessons to those - citizens, mayors, officers, activists, professionals, investors, entrepreneurs - who are committed to communities and places, and actively engaged in reshaping their future." –Matteo Robiglio, Professor of Urban and Architectural Design, Politecnico di Torino

"Remaking Post-Industrial Cities is a must have, must read for all of us that are fascinated by the past, present and future of our urban environments and their capacity to shape the lives of their citizens and the future of civilisation." –John Thompson, Honorary President, The Academy of Urbanism.
