Recombinant Urbanism develops the urban-modeling techniques, first pioneered by Kevin Lynch, into a comprehensive framework for the fast-growing discipline of urban design. It also looks at the influence of participatory planning processes, zoning codes, imagery, finance, and marketing on urban form. Shane describes how the very same forces at work behind the freedom of the individual have also led to a widespread urban dispersal.

Internationally, urban design is more and more becoming a core subject . Shane now also lectures at Cooper Union and City College in New York.

Internationally, urban design is more and more becoming a core subject taught in architecture schools. The AIA (US) and the RIBA (UK) both require undergraduates and graduates to study the urban dimension of architectural design. Over the last 20 years, he has taught urban-design master classes and lectured internationally, as well as being published widely.

David Grahame Shane Urban actors work as catalysts in the city and depend on conceptual models to guide them, whether they act as architect, urban designer, or landscape or city designer. A city model enables a designer to construct an understanding of the city and its component elements; facilitating design decisions. In ‘A Theory of Good City Form’ (1981), Kevin Lynch described his own influential triad of models, the City of Faith, the City as a Machine, and the City as an Organism. Standard urban history texts such as Spiro Kostof’s ‘The City Shaped (1991) site these three models.

This book provides a simple but comprehensive framework for theemerging academic discipline of urban design, from its origins inEurope and America, to contemporary issues of imagery, finance andmarketing in an age of globalisation

There is currently no contemporary textbook for urban designthat includes a general history and theory of the subject.

Internationally, urban design is more and more becoming a coresubject taught in architecture schools. The AIA (US) and the RIBA(UK) both require undergraduates and graduates to study the urbandimension of architectural design. On a wider scale, in Europe, theEU is developing a common architectural curriculum, which includesan urban component for under-graduates. The situation is similar inschools across Asia and Australia.

Aimed at both students and teachers, this book provides a simpleand accessible framework, from the origins of urban design and themain techniques developed to deal with the design of fragments ofcities, to participatory planning processes, codes, imagery,finance and marketing. Finally, it proposes an innovative vision ofcontemporary practice based on the work of leading actors andprojects in the field.

This book is set to become the key textbook at undergraduateand graduate levelsIt is written in an accessible and direct tone, and highlyillustrated with many colour and black and white diagramsIt includes a general history and theory of urban design andprovides an up-to-date account of contemporary urbanconditions

Praise for Recombinant Urbanism:

"Documents a major intellectual advance…eagerly awaitedby academics and practitioners all around the world…should become a standard text for schools of architectureand urbanism." Leon Van Schaik, Innovation Professorof Architecture, RMIT, Australia 

" …both unique and instrumentally positive. The book is the result of many years of research and writing, andis a small masterpiece in urban studies.  It has alreadyproved its worth in the teaching of urban studies, at Columbia, theAA, the Bartlett School, and Cooper Union, to mention only a few ofthe universities where Dr Shane has had a powerful influence...Itis, indeed, one of the very best manuscripts I have read in thefield in the last few years."  Anthony Vidler,Professor and Dean, Irwin S Chanin School of Architecture, CooperUnion, New York, USA

"I can say without hesitation that I fully endorseGrahame’s work…the issues it covers are highly topicaland such a book would indeed be widely read by architecturestudents, urban designers and planners." Colin Fournier,Professor of Architecture &Urbanism, Bartlett School ofArchitecture, UCL, UK

"Of great necessity for undergraduate and postgraduatestudents, scientists and professionals in urban planning and design[This] publication will certainly inspire work with city models ina wide range of practice." Henrik W Jensen, AssociateProfessor in Town Planning, Aarhus School of Architecture, TheNetherlands

"A very important book.  Shane … has made legibleand sensible the reams of recent urban discourse for a generalcollege reader. Because of this labor-intensive effort, this bookwill be accessible by undergrad architecture programs as well asgraduate seminars in urban design and planning. Additionally thereis a big interest in UD and UP theory in ecology and social sciencenow, and because of Grahame’s generous writing style the bookwill cross over to these other disciplines. … I can alsospeak to the international interest in this book; … againShane has made important urban theories and thinking more widelyavailable to an international student audience. … The legacythe book will have (will be in) convincing people that the designof cities matters, not in the overbearing and over-controllingsense of new urbanism, but in reinforcing the multiplepossibilities of contemporary life.   Brian McGrath,Adjunct Associate Professor of Architecture, Columbia University,USA

Pragmatic exploitation of cities and their dwellers may be an ineradicable disease that drives the squalor and eventual decline of urban agglommerations, but those who take on diagnosis of the seemingly incurable become saviors if successful. There have been only a handful of modern-era thinkers with the knowledge, insight and creativity on what's wrong with the design of cities and what might be done to make it better, Viollet le Duc, Lewis Mumford, Kevin Lynch among them. It is an unexpected pleasure to encounter a new deep thinker standing on these giants' shoulders in Grahame Shane's magisterial "Recombinant Urbanism: Conceptual Modeling in Architecture, Urban Design and City Theory." The volume is comprehensive on urbanism, historically and intellectually, and will amply reward the student, scholar and professional who reads it in parts or most beneficially, in whole -- more than once. Prepare to be highly educated by this book, not merely advised what to do to get or keep a job or get a project funded by public taxation. If read and comprehended by urban policy makers it will contribute to their escape from real estate development hell, or if not that, it will arm honorable officials against the weasels who want to claim cities as their own profitmaking playpens. Shane wonderfully reminds what it is like to learn from a deeply thoughtful scholar offering open wisdom compared to a city-exploiter pitching secret schemes. Still, one might imagine land developers and good buddy officials searching Shane's compendium for nuggets to use in their next snake oil presentation to suspicious citizen groups rightfully fed up with unceasing demands for bailouts.
