4-0 out of 5 stars excellent introduction to how residential streets evolved
This books describes the history and evolution of residential streets in the US and Britain.It remains very objective, until the last chapter when the authors push for the shared streets concept.As a transportation planning professional, I found it very informative and compelling.It didthe impossible: it changed my mind on the value of cul-de-sacs. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars An Essential Work on the New Urbanism
The Charter of the New Urbanism not only sets forth a manifesto of what future generations of town planners and residential developers may deem the most significant architectural movement of the late 20th and early 21st centuries, but it does so with clarity, precision, and economy.1-0 out of 5 stars A very dry treatment of a fantastic topic!
This is a very dry and disjointed work.If you are interested in the topic, have a blast and read Suburban Nation and The Geography of Nowhere.Then if you want more, buy Christopher Alexander's works--and savor them.

5-0 out of 5 stars Architectural Record says:
"An important work that defines the tenets of New Urbanism, this book serves as the group's manifesto. The charter illustrates the 27 principles of New Urbanism, from the scale of regions to neighborhoods and buildings, and pairs each with an essay by a different author. Now followers of the movement can use the charter to define their work and detractors can refer to it when presenting their side of the debate. ... Graphically pleasing, the book reads well ... When defining the problems of today's development patterns, the text is clear and seductive. ... The test of the Charter of New Urbanism will be its timeless quality. ..." ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A well-written foray into urban formation
Spiro Kostof's book is a fantastic and intelligent foray into urban form. What I found most appealing about the book was his approach in grappling with the WHY of things; in describing how certain urban forms have come to pass, he offers the requisite determined factors as any architect of the City ought to do and then manages the neat trick of gracefully acknowledging that these factors do not necessarily lead to a single outcome. But he is intrepid in his analysis and his approach. Beginners may find this book difficult because it does assume a basic understanding of cities and city planning; however, ambitious readers should give it a try. Mr. Kostof's cultural and historical references and his non-linear style are extremely appealing and intriguing, so much so that I will continue on to "The City Assembled", the companion piece, with great eagerness.

5-0 out of 5 stars excelent
este livro possui indicacoes excelentes para um pesquisador da forma urbana e da historia da cidade trilhar seus conhecimentos.
5-0 out of 5 stars A classic
Well written, consistently interesting and structured around the challenges of topography and the urban form demands invoked by market needs, political architectures and cultural expectations through history, this beautifully illustrated book delivers the promise of its title and a lot more.

5-0 out of 5 stars An inspiring collection of innovative, constructive project ideas for environmental and neighborhood improvement activists
The companion book to the PBS television program of the same name, Edens Lost And Found: How Ordinary Citizens Are Restoring Our Great American Cities is co-authored by Harry Wiland and Dale Bell with Joseph D'Angnese and is an inspirational and instructive guide to environmental restoration projects undertaken by ordinary cities in the cities of Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Seattle, and Chicago, as well as the remarkable work of many individual activists in their pursuit for a stronger, greener urban environment. Exploring the landscape and natural intervention of many smaller communities and neighborhoods, Edens Lost And Found carries its readers through the processes of remarkable transformations, and reshapings which these ordinary people in collaboration with one another help were able to achieve in a variety of circumstances and conditions. An invaluable addition to community library collections, Edens Lost And Found is particularly recommended reading as an inspiring collection of innovative, constructive project ideas for environmental and neighborhood improvement activists.

5-0 out of 5 stars great combination of words and visuals
I found this at the library and was pleasantly surprised at what a great find it was.It is visually up to date with graphics and understandable lay outs that are both informative and inspirational.The projects are appropriate for the subject however they are not indepth displays of examples but a multitude of thought provoking projects.A great book for the architect/critic/student seeking avant garde ideas and projects that leaves room for individual additions. ...
