DATUTOP 7: Principles of Architecture (Tampere University of Technology, Department of Architecture, 1985) by Jorma Mänty is a theoretical analysis of urban architecture and its central qualitative features.
Architecture emerges from the very concept of building. The place of urban architecture is somewhere in the middle of the continuum from the concept of building to one individual edifice. Urban architecture means above all general environmental principles which could in some way govern all individual elements of the environment.
