Praise

Owning the Street: The Everyday Life of Property is invaluable for everyone interested in the future of cities and especially for those in search of novel ways to radically accomplish incremental change through continued civic creativity, committed talent, and dedication.”—Landscape Journal


“Interrelationships between sociology, law and planning are not much explored in scholarly and professional fields of planning, to put it mildly. Amelia Thorpe’s publication, Owning the Street, gives a wonderful demonstration of the significance of adopting just such an interdisciplinary perspective. [ . . . ] This inspiring book must be used and discussed in bachelor or master classes of planning schools.”—Planning Theory


Amelia Thorpe’s Owning the Street: The Everyday Life of Property is a thought-provoking scholarship on the role of user-generated urbanism in shaping the contemporary metropolis. [ . . . ] Thorpe weaves magic through her captivating story-telling style backed by state-of-the-art research to elucidate the role of PARK(ing) Day as a compelling idea which disrupts the status quo to be a zeitgeist, which could revolutionise the contemporary socio-political discourse and inspire the readers to work for a sustainable future.”—Emotion, Space and Society
