Most Helpful Customer Reviews

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Matthew Thyer on October 28, 2009
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If only for the photographs that grace this work anyone lucky enough to lay hands on this thought provoking and insightful vision of a sustainable human future should be happy thumbing through the pages. The fact that Crawford's beautiful photographic collection happens to be juxtaposed with a discerning and detailed conceptualization of a lifestyle which most of the world hasn't yet imagined makes the "Carfree Design Manual" to a truly revolutionary oeuvre.

Crawford has created a framework that if adopted by cities in part or in its entirety would result in an arrangement of structures and artifacts that would not only be considerably more sustainable but beautiful. This book should be in the library of anyone interested in living in a better place.
