URBAN DESIGN COMPENDIUM (Priručnik za urbani dizajn) editors of the Serbian edition Goran Petrović and Darko Polić published by Orion Art and Prograf, Belgrade, 2008. This book is an adopted translation of the Urban Design Compendium, originally published by the English Partnerships, a pioneer of urban renewall and regeneration in England. It thoroughly describes the methodology applied and proscribed by this agency to all its partners, based on the promotion of design quality as key to sucessful project implementation. It contains clearly defined problems that are, according to the authors, the most important in the process of urban renewall, as well as recomentations on how they should be resolved, in order to acheive proclamed values of urban space. That way, developers, planners and designers, but also the local community, all have a guide through their projects, while local authorities get a tool for evaluating proposals. www.urbandesigncompendium.co.uk
