Shaping Tokyo: Land Development And Planning Practice In The Early Modern Japanese Metropolis, Carola Hein Jan 2010

Shaping Tokyo: Land Development And Planning Practice In The Early Modern Japanese Metropolis, Carola Hein

Growth and Structure of Cities Faculty Research and Scholarship

From the mid-nineteenth century, Japanese elites experimented with foreign planning concepts and transformed their cities to respond to the demands of modernization. Even though they faced similar situations, knew about established European techniques, and had large open spaces available, they established planning practices that were different from those of their foreign counterparts, building on the country’s own urban history and form, particularities in landownership, development needs, urban planning techniques, and design preferences. This article highlights, first, key issues of landownership, urban form, and urban development in the Edo period (1603—1867) and provides an overview of the urban transformation ...

Machi: Neighborhood And Small Town—The Foundation For Urban Transformation In Japan, Carola Hein Jan 2008

Machi: Neighborhood And Small Town—The Foundation For Urban Transformation In Japan, Carola Hein

Growth and Structure of Cities Faculty Research and Scholarship

The term machi, signifying both neighborhood and small town, is a key element for understanding Japanese urban form and city planning. After tracing the origins of the term, this article explores the historic and contemporary significance of the concept and its particular spatial and socioeconomic forms. The article then argues that the concept of machi influenced the ways in which Japanese planners picked up foreign concepts through the nineteenth and particularly the twentieth century, absorbing some ideas and rejecting others. Building on their perception of the city as composed of urban units that allowed for planning in patchwork patterns, leading ...

European Spatial Development, The Polycentric Eu Capital, And Eastern Enlargement, Carola Hein Jan 2006

European Spatial Development, The Polycentric Eu Capital, And Eastern Enlargement, Carola Hein

Growth and Structure of Cities Faculty Research and Scholarship

Over five decades a new decentralized model for the European capital city has emerged through the distribution of European Union (EU) institutions and agencies, but as the result of national compromise and competition rather than the implementation of a vision of Europe. More than a purely administrative issue, the location of EU headquarters opens questions on the nature of European spatiality, the relation between politics and space and the role of headquarters cities in that space. To date, the decentralized unplanned structure has brought economic and symbolic benefits to the host cities and nations, but has also caused—notably in ...
