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.
