Glasgow - The Forming of the City

£23.99

Product description

Edinburgh University Press 1993. Hardback with dust jacket in very good used condition. Some fading to front of jacket and very light wear to edges of rear jacket - also a small tear at top left of rear jacket (see photo). Boards and pages are clean and binding tight throughout.
This book traces the architectural and socio-economic history of Glasgow from its merchant origins, through 19th- and 20th-century decline, to its present regeneration. Illustrated accounts by leading architectural and civil engineering historians describe the phases of growth and change, and the building ventures through which these changes were realised. They outline the current conservation programme for the preservation of former tenement slums, the grander suburbs and the historic merchant centre, and reveal why Glasgow is now considered "the finest surviving example of a great Victorian city". Concentrating more on the developing form of the city than on architechture of individual buildings this book should provide a useful case study for students of urban design, architecture and planning.
