For better or worse, the laws that govern the everyday operation of cities are crucial in determining their character (or our perception of such): think of the variations in laws, from city to city, in the U.S. alone, on recycling, parking, zoning or transit. First published in 2009 (by 010 Publishers), University of Illinois professor Alex Lehnerer’s Grand Urban Rules explores the history of contemporary urban regulations, mandates and codes--from the exemplary to the bizarre--through an examination of the 115 rules that guide development in the fictional composite city of Averuni. Basing these rules on discussions of urban design and planning rules that have been implemented in Europe, North America and Asia, Lehnerer argues that they function as design tools for architects and urban planners, and emphasizes both their positive functionality and their more constrictive effects.
