Stock Description

All too often, no one--neither the public, city officials, nor developers--is happy with the course of new development. But growing support for urban design and successful examples of redesigned cities are signs of positive change. In this book, Jonathan Barnett explains how design can reshape suburban growth patterns, revitalize older cities, and retrofit metropolitan areas where earlier development went wrong. He describes, in detail, specific techniques, materials, and technologies that should be known (but often aren't) by planners, public officials, and citizens--and, in the process, makes a valuable contribution to the development initiatives of the future.
