The Urban Design Handbook is a vital design and analysis tool for housing practitioners and students, which outlines the characteristics of some of the most interesting and prominent housing typologies. The revised and updated 2nd edition of the handbook will provide graphic representation and analysis of approximately 30 urban case studies from around the world with recent examples.

In each chapter, a housing type will be fully explored through a traditional case study and then a more modern example that demonstrates how it has been reinterpreted in a contemporary context. Addressing the changing trends in architecture and urban design of recent years, the selection will broadly focus on dense metropolitan projects, grouped into 4 categories (the courtyard house, row house, compound and apartment building) and will present one prominent example for each major typology sub-group.
