Walter Hood: urban diaries
A unique perspective -- creating urban landscape to serve the needs of people in neglected neighborhoods -- is found here.
This book urges both designers and the public to find the beginning steps in forging creative solutions to old problems in urban design. The author proposes an approach of inventive responsiveness to address the blight found in areas of disenfranchised populations. Through his upbeat insight into the particular cultural identities of individual communities, and the theoretical remedies he offers tailored to different groups, Hood encourages readers to see the urban landscape with fresh eyes.
