Encyclopedia of the City[edit]

This page called Principles of Intelligent Urbanism is a recognised topic found in the Encyclopedia of the City (Cave, Roger. 2004) published by Routledge in London. There is an issue of the authoritive international journal on urbanism containing a lengthy scholarly paper onthe topic in Ekistics, Volumn 69, Number 412, pp. 39-65, Athens in 2001, Amongst others.

Hello, and thanks for contributing to Wikipedia. Judging from your sources, this topic may just be notable, but the article needs heavy cleanup, as it's written in a rather confusing style and not properly formatted, so it's hard to follow. Please refer to the links in the cleanup tags I've applied. Sandstein 22:16, 21 October 2006 (UTC)

Dear Sandstein: Thanks a lot for your constructive help! this is my first article and I've downloaded the Guide to Layout, Cleanup and other things which I am now studying! I am Ramprasad in Pune, India and I have written a book called Psychology for Beginners, which is the first Indian basic text on psychology. I am an anthropologist also, and am working. Really appreciate your guidance. Seems like an ausome task ahead! Will try. Ram 11:27, 22 October 2006 (UTC)Word2line 14:41, 22 October 2006 (UTC)

Ramprasad is presumably Mr. Akkisetti Ramprasad Naidu, Managing Director of Christopher Charles Benninger Architects [1]. According to the firm's website, the Principles of Intelligent Urbanism are a set of ten axioms that "emerged from several decades of urban planning practice by Christopher Benninger in the Asian context (Benninger, 2001). It was the basis for the new capital plan for Bhutan." [2].

The Benninger firm's planning axioms may be of interest to Wikipedia, but this PIU article appears to be just a wordy statement of the company's principles. -- Mukrkrgsj 23:30, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

Potential copyright violation[edit]

This article appears to be a direct copy of information provided by the government of Bhutan, albeit with some minor modifications that have accrued over the history of this document. The source of this information appears to be one of the items listed within the references: [3] I highly recommend that this potential plagiarism be addressed immediately, and recommend this be considered for posting to Wikipedia:Copyright problems. --Bossi (talk ;; contribs) 23:07, 9 April 2007 (UTC)


I have made major changes to the article intended to remove redundant and repetitive passages, remove promotional literature type statements, bring the article into NPOV compliance, fix some grammer errors, improve consistancy and try to make the article more readable.

Oh, I removed alot of commentary and catalog like examples intended to illustrate the point. They are not appropriate in an encyclopedia article. I also removed text that is redundant because of the article appropriate technology - a recap of what appropriate technology is in this article is unnecessary when a link to the appropriate technology article is present.
