Abstract

278 Book Reviews valuable contribution. There is a degree of unevenness in disused spaces, temporary urbanism can be more in terms of contributions, with some chapters much about consumption than production. It embraces stronger than others. The structure of the book, set out community initiatives and familiar matters of urban in three clear sections, helps to overcome this uneven- sustainability. The Temporary City presents 68 such ness, and the case studies  a key strength throughout case studies, drawn mostly from Europe and North the book  provide colourful illustrations of points America (emphasising London in particular). In made. Although strongly influenced by the theory and effect, this book catalogues new and fascinating practices with compelling insights that might other- practice of landscape architecture, the contributors are wise not get documented and certainly not in such a drawn from a range of disciplines, resulting in a text comprehensive collection. that will have broad appeal to readers interested in the In its introduction (Chapter 1), The Temporary City shape, form and integrity of the environment. clearly states its aim.
