Publications

Since its inception, the Institute for Urban Design has produced an array of publications. In November 1979, the Institute launched a bi-monthly magazine called Urban Design International that, in 1985, became a newsletter titled Urban Design Update. Additional publications, such as Fellows’ Symposium Proceedings, Case Studies and Monographs were published over the years. Building our archive is an ongoing process, but we hope you will find this index helpful for your research.
