The evolution of American urban design: a chronological anthology
This is the first time an overview of the theories and practice of urban design has
been offered. Covering a 50-year span, the book seeks to identify built urban
design projects and traces the evolution and separation of American urban design
theories up to the end of the twentieth century. It includes contemporary designs,
projects, and writings in an attempt to identify future directions of the next century.
