Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Regarding issues of urban sprawl Visit Sprawl Net, at Rice University. It's under construction, but it should be an interesting resource. Check out the traffic in the land of commuting. And, finally, enjoy Los Angeles: Revisiting the Four Ecologies.

Book News Annotation:

Advocates a fundamental change in patterns of building to respond to the growth crisis in US metropolitan regions. Defines a new direction, and provides guidelines--not an architectural manifesto or utopian proposal, but the alternatives currently shaping debate regarding housing, traffic, and environmental and social problems. Describes numerous real projects from various regions. Abundantly illustrated.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
