1 atlas (xv, 367 p.) : ill., maps, plans (some col.) ; 29 x 37 cm. + 1 CD-ROM (4 3/4 in.)
This is an atlas of historic city plans.Although contemporary professional use of the term dates from the mid-twentieth century, "urban design" has been practiced throughout history. Examples of carefully planned ancient cities exist in Asia, India, Africa, Europe, and the Americas and are hallmarks of classical Chinese, Roman and Greek cultures."The Genealogy of Cities" is a compilation of ancient and modern city plans, from 350 BCE to the present, depicting both built and proposed city plans. It is written in an accessible and direct tone, and illustrated with more than 500 plans drawn at the same scale, something unique to this work. It provides a previously unavailable tool for academics and professionals who must grapple with the issue of scale in researching and teaching urban design or when creating new urban spaces. Author Charles P. Graves Jr. created these computer-generated plans to provide a method of understanding models for modern cities while also creating a series of typological diagrams for both historical periods and city fabric. Also included in this volume is a set of CDs containing 1000-plus plans that will allow the user to print the urban plans at any scale.This will be a useful and impressive reference book for students, scholars, and urban design and planning professionals and those interested in city planning, urban geography, urban morphology, architecture, cartography, and art history.

1 atlas (xv, 250 p.) : ill. (some col.), maps (some col.), 31 folded maps ; 34 cm.
Comprising thirty-one maps at a metric scale of 1:1,250 and a descriptive catalogue, The Monuments of Historic Cairo marks the first time that the city's significant architectural heritage has been mapped in ground plan within the present-day urban context. The work surveys an area of nearly six square kilometers, stretching from the city's northern walls southward to the Mosque of Ibn Tulun and the Citadel. It documents an extraordinary variety of historically important monuments ranging from the tenth through the nineteenth century, and includes street patterns that have now disappeared but that are crucial for understanding how the city has developed over the course of more than a thousand years. The catalogue provides historical information about more than 500 key buildings situated in the historic core of Cairo (one of the first cities inscribed on the World Heritage list), and includes scholarly bibliographical references, as well as details of each building's conservation history. More than two hundred buildings are documented here for the first time. Funded by the United States Agency for International Development and financed by the Egyptian Antiquities Project of the American Research Center in Egypt, The Monuments of Historic Cairo records the city's urban fabric and its architectural treasures, enhancing our understanding of the morphology and architecture of one of the world's great historic cities.
