For Terry Farrell urban design should be based on a number of principles: a notion of continuum with the history and traditions of a specific area, a priority given to the pedestrian and the experience of the street and a desire to create new places with an identity to encourage the return of the diversity of traditional urban life. Each chapter of this illustrated book presents a series of recent projects which have in common an identifiable urban design theme with an accompanying text detailing its history and urban context. They include the City and Cheapside (with the Paternoster masterplan), the Barbican and London Wall, the River Thames, market halls, railway stations (including Charing Cross), large public institutions (the South Bank), London's natural landscape, parks, squares and open spaces, the private world and outer villages.
