The sweeping economic, environmental and social changes at work in our urban societies are re-orienting and complexifying the ways in which the professions of architecture and urbanism are practised. By analysing examples and case studies, and attempting a synthesis of diverse teaching experiences and recent research works undertaken in France, elsewhere in Europe, and in North America, the author examines the vital questions of our day and outlines answers. What are the signs of change? How can designers (given the impact their productions will have on energy consumption and global warming) apprehend the world that will emerge from these new environments? What new strategies should they be developing? What tools and methods should they use? Along with architects, urbanists, engineers and quantity surveyors this book targets all the professionals who collaborate regularly with them in design and project management teams as well as people working for clients and contracting authorities, construction firms and industrial manufacturers. It will also be invaluable to students and novice professionals faced with the task of preparing for the changes that are re-shaping the realities of professional practice.
