This is a comprehensive new work drawing together the historical, theoretical and empirical influences which have determined the form of the built environment in today's cities. A comparison of "rationalist" and "picturesque" tendencies in modern urban design, using a wealth of international examples, allows the author to derive a series of premises for successful design amd to indicate future directions.show more
