Michael Neuman, Professor of Sustainable Urbanism in the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment at the University of Westminster, and Inés Sánchez de Madariaga, Spanish architect and urban planner and expert on gender in research, architecture, planning and development, compile in this book critical reflections on gender design in currently existing urban spaces.
