This is the sixth part of the EnP board review series. I’m going to provide a timeline and discussion on urban and regional planning history.
This lengthy part 6A post is going to cover the subject on history and principles. As much as this is the most enjoyable part of the review (it is for me, anyway), only a mere portion of this may crop up in the exam.
- Cluster the contributions according to their similarities, don’t memorise one by one. It’s what I already did for this post, so you don’t go back and forth on sudden, familiar terms.
- Repeatedly read through the timeline to appreciate the development of urban planning.
- Names are important, dates are for reference. Works are for deeper appreciation. Principles matter the most.
- I’m linking the names of the urbanists to the most concise biographies I can find online. Refer to those for backgrounders, and to this post for their roles in urban and regional planning history.
Let’s start with the Ancients.
