Summary
"Challenges current notions of space and distance, helping us learn to appreciate and cultivate proximity. A follow-up to Visualizing Density (2007), this book illustrates 12 North American urban neigHborhoods of approximately 125 acres each with hundreds of street-level photographs. Discusses factors of urban form that boost walking and transit use. Visualizes a low-carbon environment in smaller increments and shows how compact development can take shape in different regions and climates"--Provided by publisher.
