Abstract

The themes of this book are important and timely, and reflect the increasingly cross-discipline manner in which challenges faced in the built environment must be addressed. This has been reflected of course in the calls and projects supported by major research funders, but one can argue that this in turn simply reflects a recognition in society that urban problems are complex, and require a response which draws on a diversity of expertise. The relationships between people and the constructed environment are dealt with using a range of participants and contexts, and the book serves to demonstrate how the academic and professional communities can work together.
