Jane Jacobs’ Legacy Science of and Love for The Creative City
Throughout her life, the American-Canadian self-made research scientist Jane Jacobs (1916-2006) was preoccupied with the quality of life and the socio-economic dynamic of what she called creative cities. She conducted in-depth studies with a sharp eye for detail, and as a result each book she wrote led to a wide range of surprising and stimulating insights. With this book, Dany Jacobs attempts to safeguard that important, stimulating legacy, confronting other authors who have published more recent work on creative cities.
The contents include:
– spatial organisation
– the economic dynamic
– socio-cultural mobilisation
– the visual impact
