Collage City

Front Cover
MIT Press, 1983 - Architecture - 185 pages
3 Reviews

This book is a critical reappraisal of contemporary theories of urban planning and design and of the role of the architect-planner in an urban context. The authors, rejecting the grand utopian visions of "total planning" and "total design," propose instead a "collage city" which can accommodate a whole range of utopias in miniature.

Not a fun read. Absolutely atrocious. Sentences ramble on for whole paragraph. Use periods, people. Make your point succinct. Stop over-using commas. Make your point and move on. Would rather give it 0 stars.
