Editorial Reviews

Review

...a readable, tautly organized, authoritative volume...—Architectural Forum

This small and readable book makes one of the most important modern contributions to large-scale design theory.

David A. Crane, Journal of the American Institute of Planners

From the Back Cover

What does the city's form actually mean to the people who live there? What can the city planner do to make the city's image more vivid and memorable to the city dweller? To answer these questions, Mr. Lynch, supported by studies of Los Angeles, Boston, and Jersey City, formulates a new criterion--imageability--and shows its potential value as a guide for the building and rebuilding of cities.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too small to read
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on March 3, 2021
It’s quite funny how the paperback version is literally a scaled down version of a much bigger book. Resulting in a nonsense layout with a massive blank space at the bottom of each page, the smallest text and indecipherable images. The price is great and the book itself is fantastic, just buy a bigger version instead. Seriously i have 10/10 and i cannot read some of the stuff.
