Volume 2 of the four-volume work Handbuch der Stadtbaukunst offers examples of five types of courtyards as a guide to designing them: residential courtyards, commercial spaces, schoolyards, entrance courtyards, and hybrid courtyards. It depicts courtyards in Augsburg, Berlin, Bochum, Dresden, Frankfurt am Main, Hamburg, Kiel, Cologne, Leipzig, Lübeck, Munich, Nuremberg, Passau, Potsdam, Regensburg, Stuttgart, Weimar, and Wiesbaden for comparison. Featuring essays by Alexander Pellnitz and Wolfgang Sonne.
Now available in a student edition, the Handbuch der Stadtbaukunst is a compendium of essential urban design expertise. Using 150 examples from over 70 German cities, it illustrates, analyzes, and compares a wide range of urban spaces, courtyards, squares, and streets. Editor Christoph Mäckler builds on the textbooks of the early twentieth century by Cornelius Gurlitt, Raymond Unwin, and Josef Stübben and offers a well-grounded framework for city planning.
