Editorial Reviews


“As our ability to quantify and track the urban experience grows, data increasingly asserts itself as the lingua franca of planning and municipal administration. Local Code brings the point home with a volume of beautifully designed and densely packed data visualizations revealing the complexity of urban dynamics.” —Metropolis

"In Local Code, Nicholas de Monchaux pushes us to assign new value to forgotten pieces of our urban fabric - the dead-end alley, the vacant corner lot; infrastructure's leftovers. While many cities deem vacant parcels as unusable remnants of development, Local Code makes the case for aggregating them to build urban resilience..Ultimately, Local Code encourages us to read between the lines, or buildings, and see new opportunities in forgotten spaces." - The Dirt (American Society of Landscape Architects)
