American Urban Architecture: Catalysts in the Design of Cities
Attoe and Logan propose a specifically American theory of urban design. Arguing that theories of urban design, especially theories about the remaking of cities, have been largely European in origin and thus of questionable value in American contexts, the authors see the characteristic features of American cities--the grid, loft buildings, distinctive styling, and so forth--as opportunities for a specifically American urbanism.
