About the Author

Eamonn Canniffe teaches Design, Architectural History and Urban Design at the University of Sheffield School of Architecture. His research into the history and practice of urban design extends to the spatial development of the Italian piazza, the urban impact of twentieth century architecture and the implementation of contemporary British urban design projects.


'Summarising several millennia in such a short space is a feat of synthesis and somehow Canniffe manages it through the selection of significant examples and by making perceptive connections ... Perceptive and stimulates a different way of thinking about the city.' - Urban Design 'The book advocates a flexible approach to the solution of urban problems through urban design ... Interesting analysis and good interpretation.' -- Built Environment, Newsletter of Centre for Built Environment, Kolkata, India
