Stadtplanerische und städtebauliche Leitbilder seit der Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts
The book presents about 60 written documents in which urban planning models were developed. With a few exceptions, those were selected which were published in the German-speaking cultural area alone - or in a contemporary translation - and which focus not only on individual aspects but also on the overall topic and thus develop guiding principles. Also included are pan-European pronouncements in which German representatives have participated.

After the power in the cities had passed to the city dwellers in the early 19th century and the beginnings of municipal self-administration had come about, a new discipline came into focus in the last quarter of the century, which still makes a name for itself today: the teaching of urban planning or urban design as a separate field of architecture at the universities. At the same time, specialist books of the most varied kinds and a multitude of articles and announcements have since dealt with this subject: with the character and tasks of urban planning or urban design.
The texts dealt with, dating from the middle of the 19th century to the present day, are always those that have been, or at least could have been, not only of theoretical-literary interest, but also of practical significance. The author’s comments are made from today’s perspective. They are also based on his experiences and persistently formative – objective as well as subjective – assessments from his many years of work as a planner in municipal service as well as his subsequent freelance activity.
