Volume 4 of the four-volume work Handbuch der Stadtbaukunst offers examples of different types of streets and their characteristics as a guide to designing them: avenues, target buildings, bends, and arcades, as well as their breadth and overall visual impact. It depicts street spaces in Augsburg, Bad Arolsen, Bad Tölz, Berlin, Bremen, Chemnitz, Dinkelsbühl, Dortmund, Dresden, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt am Main, Freiburg, Halle (Saale), Hamburg, Heidelberg, Karlsruhe, Cologne, Landshut, Leipzig, Lindau, Munich, Münster, Potsdam, Regensburg, Speyer, Stralsund, Wiesbaden, and Wismar for comparison. Featuring an essay by Vittorio Magnago Lampugnani.
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.
