A timely and useful discourse on a facet of urbanisation modern city planning has struggled with. The simple cadastral setting of plots is a profound inculcator of diversity and robustness in the city. The book is neatly segmented into lit review, theory and case studies. The case studies are beautifully illustrated. THE PLOT is a 'must have' library reference for urban design and master planning.

This timely work is readable, succinct, informative and well researched. It begins with an overview of current thinking about urban design and an analysis of how architects and planners have largely failed to provide towns and cities with the diversity that has long been identified as the elusive magic ingredient of successful, well-loved places. The real value of the book, however, is that it goes on to dispel the mystery by providing a pragmatic toolkit for getting it right. Anyone grappling with the localism agenda should read this.

This is a thoughtful and provocative work that should be on your list to read if interested in promoting resiliency in the built environment. Tarbatt's 'missing ingredient' to progressing the Placemaking agenda is a reconsideration of the plot and its relationship to close-grain urban forms that serve as a substrate for more diversity and mixture of uses.
