Editorial Reviews


"In this major contribution to urban design, Palazzo and Steiner emphasize not only the intricacies and promises of the process, but also the ecological imperatives of urban design. A wonderful compendium of methods, techniques, best practices—clearly written and amply illustrated—this book is essential for urban design students and practitioners."
(Tridib Banerjee James Irvine Chair in Urban and Regional Planning, University of Southern CA)

"Palazzo and Steiner bring together fresh perspectives from urban design and urban ecology, offering valuable lessons on how to face environmental challenges in building future cities. Their proposed process, which argues against limiting design to single solutions, rightly places ecological thinking at the heart of urban design."
(Ali Madanipour Prof. of Urban Design, School of Architecture, Planning & Landscape, Newcastle U)

"Urban Ecological Design: A Process for Regenerative Places is a comprehensive and accessible guidebook on urban design with an emphasis on ecology and sustainability."
(ASLA's The Dirt blog)

"Danilo Palazzo and Frederick Steiner have produced a textbook with soul."

"I found Urban Ecological Design to be an absolutely wonderful resource if you are interested in finding out what urban design is and how it's done."

"...a richly provocative, yet practical compendium of problem-solving ideas."
(Reference & Research Book News)

"Each chapter provides extensive information, frequently in the form of bulleted lists; this shapes the book as a form of reference work for consultation, rather than as a narrative that can be read cover to cover."

"a welcome addition to course reading for planning and urban design students...accessible and logical."
(Journal of Planning Education and Research)

"...the authors offer a clear view of professional practice, which embraces environmental concerns..."
(Urban Design)

"Intended for students, practitioners, developers, and public officials, this book offers many interesting and informative insights for those who are both new to the field and seasoned professionals alike. As one of the more comprehensive texts outlining the processes and thought that contributes to this evolving field, Urban Ecological Design: A Process for Regenerative Places is an excellent resource in helping those involved better understand and appreciate this highly interdisciplinary approach to transforming the land and landscape."
(Ecological Restoration)

"In this landmark book, Palazzo and Steiner outline a straightforward process for incorporating urban ecology into the design of cities, towns and regions. They present clear principles and practices that the next generation of urban designers can use to build greener, more livable cities and regions."
(Robert D. Yaro President, Regional Plan Association, and Professor of Practice, U. Penn.)
