Design Of Cities


 "The major contemporary work on urban design . . . Splendidly presented, filled with thoughtful and brilliant intuitive insights." The New RepublicIn a brilliant synthesis of words and pictures, Edmund N. Bacon relates historical examples to modern principles of urban planning. He vividly demonstrates how the work of great architects and planners of the past can influence subsequent development and be continued by later generations. By illuminating the historical background of urban design, Bacon also shows us the fundamental forces and considerations that determine the form of a great city.
