What people are saying - Write a review
One of Kevin Lynch's best books, by far. Beneath the simple and accessible language, lies profound thinking and radical humanism that is as valid now as when it was published. The key is to engage with his ideas and to reinterpret them in the contemporary context, rather than take them literally. There is much to be gained by urban practitioners and scholars alike.
