Summary
"This volume is the culmination of a lifetime's research and practice. It offers a comprehensive survey of American urban design, beginning with an account of its origins from the 17th to the early 20th centuries and continuing with a decade-by-decade analysis of developments from the 1950s to the present. The author's far-reaching examination extends beyond architectural and planning issues to a wider picture of the times, and he sets the development of urban planning theory and practice in the context of the cultural shifts that shaped them." "From shopping malls to utopian settlements, and from the modification of existing cities to the creation of entire new towns, every type of urban design project is covered. The influence of leading figures is examined, including Gyorgy Kepes, Frank Lloyd Wright, Kevin Lynch, Philip Thiel, Christopher Alexander, Peter Calthorpe, Robert Venturi, Bernard Tschumi, Rem Koolhaas, Peter Eisenman, Joel Garreau, John Lang, and many others who have made significant contributions to theory and practice."--BOOK JACKET.
