Who Plans the Planning: Architecture, Politics and People
rom the 1950s, Lucius Burckhardt (19252003) focused on planning, design, and construction in a democracy. His astute observations and critical analysis have had a fundamental effect on the design of our environment, on teaching in the architectural/planning professions, and on our understanding of what "city" means. His research, which between mighty commercial interests and conflicting political aspirations focuses on the benefit for the entire population is indispensable when and wherever buildings are planned, designed, built, and inhabited. With a new selection of texts, this book ploughs a furrow through Lucius Burckhardts theory of planning.
