"We live in a world of regions, not nations, states, or cities. Today, most Americans live in an aggregation of cities and suburbs that forms one basic economic, ecological, cultural, and civic entity. These "Regional Cities" offer a framework for transforming urban and suburban neighborhoods from segregated enclaves with isolated uses into walkable, diverse, human-scale communities. They also set the stage for a discussion of our most critical quality of life issues - open space, traffic, affordable housing, economic development, social equity, and civic health."
"In The Regional City, two of the most innovative thinkers in the field of urban design and land use planning offer a detailed look at this new metropolitan form: its genesis, physical structure, and policy foundation. Using full-color graphics and in-depth case studies, they provide a thorough examination of the emerging field of regional design, explaining how new forms of smart growth and neighborhood design can help put an end to sprawl, urban disinvestment, and squandered resources." "This book is a must read for environmentalists, planners, architects, landscape architects, local officials, real estate developers, community development advocates, and students in architecture, urban planning, and policy."--Jacket.
