GardenCity1

In his book, On Town Planning, he emphasized curved residential roads and the importance of low building heights which are better able to catch sunlight at high altitudes (as in Reykjavik). He built a strong case for continuous rows of low rise houses, instead of the traditional small detached houses which characterized Reykjavik at that time. In addition he emphasized the importance of separation of residential quarters from other town functions, such as commerce and industry. An example of a Garden City urban model which concentrated housing and used large amounts of green space as buffers between residential and other land uses. E. HOWARD, GARDEN CITIES OF TO-MORROW.

Domesday Book. Domesday Book (/ˈduːmzdeɪ/ or US /ˈdoʊmzdeɪ/; Latin: Liber de Wintonia)[1][2] is a manuscript record of the great survey, completed in 1086 on orders of William the Conqueror, of much of England and parts of Wales: "While spending the Christmas time of 1085 in Gloucester, William had deep speech with his counsellors and sent men all over England to each shire to find out what or how much each landholder had in land and livestock, and what it was worth" (Anglo-Saxon Chronicle).

Domesday Book

In Latin (though highly abbreviated, and with some vernacular for native terms without Latin equivalent),[3] the survey's key purpose was to determine what taxes had been owing under Edward the Confessor. The assessors' reckoning of a man's holdings and their value, as given in the Book, was dispositive and without appeal, and thus the name Domesday Book (Middle English for Doomsday Book)[4] came into use in the 12th century.[4] As Richard FitzNigel wrote around 1179:[5] Featured Quote: Jennifer Robinson on Comparative Urban Studies. "The very fact that cities exist in a world of other cities means that any attempt at a general or theoretical statement about cities either depends upon or invites comparative reflection.

Featured Quote: Jennifer Robinson on Comparative Urban Studies

What constitutes a city, how are cities organized, what happens in them, where are they going? — in a world of cities these and many other questions invoke a comparative gesture. The budding theorist finds herself asking of the many studies she reads from different parts of the world: are these processes the same in the city I know? Are they perhaps similar but for different reasons? European Institute for Comparative Urban Research. EURICUR (through Erasmus University) is the scientific partner of the European project CRII.

The Port Areas of Ghent and Zeeland Seaports: Stronger Together? Undue Subdivision of Land Prevention Act 1885. The Undue Subdivision of Land Prevention Act 1885 was a law passed by the Parliament of Queensland in that year to prevent overcrowding and urban degradation in cities and towns in Queensland, especially in Brisbane. The law is a noteworthy example of early efforts by Australian legislators to control urban development and avoid the appearance of slums. While the Act made Brisbane and other Queensland cities a more attractive and less overcrowded place to live and raise families and allowed each household to grow a garden, it did have its disadvantages, the main one being that the resulting low population density made it more expensive to provide urban services such as sewerage, paving and street lighting.

As a result, Brisbane was the last major city in Australia to be comprehensively sewered, and unpaved laneways were common in the inner city until the 1960s.
