Lucy's book for Routledge - shortlisted for the Urban Design Awards' Urban Design Book of the Year (also known as the Francis Tibbalds Award), 2014 - has received some great reviews in the media.

Lucy Bullivant has completed and published in Masterplanning Futures a comprehensive outlook on some of the most relevant large scale developments in the world that are configuring a new understanding on the role of master plans. Manu Fernandez, Human Scale Cities
The book sets out to explore the diverse range of activities within the broad - and questionable - banner of 'masterplanning'. Bullivant examines a wide range of design interventions in the city, the motivations of designers and patrons and their relationship to place and culture. Jonathan Kendall, Architecture Today
Set against the wider horizon appearing in the wake of the global economic crisis, this book presents a thoroughly researched argument for a reclaimed approach to masterplanning. A lively, discursive introduction charts how masterplans can no longer be singular, top-down prescriptions but must offer a collective vision and operate as a framework that can be adapted over time. Juliet Bidgood, Issue 128, Autumn 2013, Urban Design
A handsome tome, well written, extensively researched and beautifully illustrated. Tim Catchpole, Issue 127, Summer 2013, Urban Design
