The Art of Building a Garden City is a well-researched guide to the history of the garden city movement and the delivery of a new generation of communities for the 21st Century. Bringing together key findings from the TCPA's campaign work, and drawing on lessons from the first garden cities, the new towns programme and other large-scale developments, it identifies what steps need to be taken in order to deliver the highest standards of design and placemaking today.

  • Written by the leading authority on Garden Cities and New Towns
  • Extremely topical within the context of the housing crisis and debate over quality housing
  • The only book on garden cities to combine academic analysis with practical guidance.
  • Internationally relevant - includes international case studies and is a popular global topic.
  • Formatted in full-colour with attractive images and diagrams (unlike other titles on this topic).

The Town and Country Planning Association (TCPA) is an independent charity campaigning for the reform of the UK planning system to make it more responsive to people's needs and aspirations, and to promote sustainable development.

The authors, Kate Henderson (Chief Executive), Katy Lock (Garden Cities and New Towns Advocate) and Hugh Ellis (Head of Policy), lead the TCPA's campaign for a new generation of garden cities for the 21st Century.
