University of Edinburgh publishes urbanism study
The University of Edinburgh has published Gamma Jaamaa, a work which explores the urban character of Edinburgh and Casablanca in a bid to ascertain what these environments say about contemporary urbanism.

Comprising a number of essays and student projects culled from masters students of the Universities Architecture and Urban Design classes.

Tom Slater, Senior Lecturer in Human Geography at the University of Edinburgh, said: “The contributors, themselves from wide-ranging intellectual and professional backgrounds, have managed to build much needed bridges between contrasting scholarly disciplines, theoretical perspectives and research methodologies, which will enable conversations to occur between all those committed to a socially just and ecologically sane vision of city life.”
