Modern urban development is a complex process involving many parties. Self-organizational practices raise new questions with regard to urban space, the adaptation of legal regulations to new conditions, and the reorganization of the financial planning of investments in the real estate sector. Planning Projects in Transition is a roadmap for urban professionals, planners, and urban researchers who face these challenges. Through an extensive set of in-depth case studies and a comparative framework of analysis, the book explores cooperative processes and addresses the key aspects of urban transformations: interventions, regulations, and investments.
The book is the result of an internationally funded research project coordinated by the University of Amsterdam and comprises a collection of urban projects from Turkey, Denmark, The Netherlands, and Finland.
