Publisher's Comments

In what he calls the first major narrative of green wedges--as opposed to green belts--in urbanism, Lemes de Oliveira constructs the untold history of the green wedge idea in international planning debates, and evaluates its application in contemporary urbanism. He covers urban planning with nature; the emergence and diffusion of the green wedge idea; towards a bright future: green wedge visions for the post-war era; polycentrism and regional planning; green spaces, networks, and contemporary challenges; towards sustainable and resilient city-regions; and green wedges: from the city-region to the neighborhood.
