Sample text

Three quarters of the book describes the historic processes of town-making. But in the last quarter the slate is wiped clean so modern welfare-based principles can be applied in an urbanism of ‘Theory and Practice’. History builds the town in the sense that it confirms the destiny of the town planner, as agent of transformation. Conclusion Town planners have never been more in need of historical appreciation and imagination. Nimbyism, urban sprawl, the motorcar versus the pedestrian, design codes, outdoor advertising, tall buildings controls, blob architecture: all the toughest contemporary controversies involve some judgement of the claims of the past.

MIT Press, 2002). History Builds the Town 11 History as Local Memory Town planning may draw on universal types but it is also an encounter with specific place and people. Local distinctiveness arises from a specific history which the planner needs to appreciate. Perhaps the most distinctive theory of this kind informed the work of Scottish town planning activist and theoretician Patrick Geddes. His view of history as a continuous process of growth was clearly marked by biological overtones and may be best represented by his design for a stained glass window, showing the ‘Arbor Saeculorum’, the tree of the centuries, in 1892.

We expect urbanism to have some foundations in local character and distinctiveness. Preservation of local memory is one element in the equation. If it were the only concern, urbanism would be parochial, narcissistic and backward-looking, but if respect for collective memory is entirely absent, planning betrays the past. 39 The Big Canvas There is a third historiographic strand in modern city planning. Not the excavation of a particular and local characteristics, nor the search for universal types and principles: but a larger narrative history, interpreting the past, construing the future, and defining the actor’s place within it.
