ISOCARP Review 12 – Envisioning Future Cities: Ideas and Examples
Editors: Shi Nan, Jim Reilly & Fran Klass
´The ISOCARP Congress theme “Cities we have vs. Cities we need” is both a description and prescription for a new urbanism that must adapt and mitigate significant environmental, social and economic change. The ISOCARP Review 12 and 52nd World Planning Congress have embraced this challenge to transform our cities.´
Ric Stephens, ISOCARP President
This expanded and updated 6th edition of the IMPP includes the planning paradigms and practices in 135 countries worldwide.
The book is a compendium on planning to practising planners in both the public and the private sector, as well as to other built environment professionals. It also constitutes a reference book for academics and students and provides basic information for planners, developers and investors who intend to operate in countries beyond their own. Besides a succinct background on each country and its planning system, the focus of the Manual is on planning practice. The format is a small book with summary pages of each country and an incorporated USB card with the country profiles as part of this publication.
The IMPP gives readers a comparative overview of planning worldwide provided by experienced practitioners and academics in five continents. The aim of the 135 case studies is to give a comprehensive panorama of the regulated development process and puts it into the perspective of real world experiences. > More

Think Deep: Planning, development and use of underground space in cities (ISBN: 978-94-90354-34-3)
“This joint publication by ISOCARP and ITACUS hopes to stimulate the thinking on the use of underground space. We urge planning practitioners not only to consider the possibilities, but also to think deep and to make underground space part of the planning of our future cities. In doing so we acknowledge that the time has come for new planning paradigms as we are transitioning to a new era in which our cities will continue to play an evermore important role for people; cities of the future, which are resilient, inclusive and above all liveable.” [Coordinators Han Admiraal and Shipra Narang Suri].
