Summary

Making a well drawn design is not enough. Designers have to work with coalitions and alianties, time and process, ecology and economy. They have to be clever, with a broad vision. This new approach doesn�t need to be boring. It can make fun. And be sexy. Green metropolises: developing older cities and rural non-places into tasty green housing landscapes. Examples in Germany, Belgium and Algeria. The tradition of IBA, Olympic Games and World expo�s: how exhibitions contribute to sustainable spatial quality. Acupuncture in London: a catalogue of ideas to renew old districts. The concept of Hollands Green Heart: how to revitalise an old planning concept. American artists vs Dutch engineers. Water as the engine of change. Essay: survey before plan, design as an exploration. The changing position of the architect. Portrait: Kees Christiaanse: urban designer in Holland and China. Christiaanse seems to play with urbanism, using informal rules as a design instrument.
