The American City: What Works, What Doesn't
McGraw Hill Professional, 19.06.2002 - 560 Seiten
This standard refernce on urban planning and design in America analyzes the key projects initiated in major cities, suburban areas, and new towns - more than 250 in all - and clearly shows which strategies and programs work and which do not. The book ranges over all elements of urban life, from stadiums to parks, and its practical recommendations are tested by real-world implementation. Since the publication of the 1/e in 1995, much is new in the rapidly changing world of urban design. Significant new types of programs, such as Business Improvement Districts; national trends such as stadium construction and loft conversions; and exciting new completed projects are all covered here to make the book the definitive guide to planning in the new decade.
