Editorial Reviews

Review

"Next Generation Infrastructure: Principles for Post-Industrial Public Works is a journey through Brown’s lively and facile mind. She has cataloged and taxonomized many public works throughout the world that harness innovative, sustainable methods and practices."
(AIA NY's e-Oculus)

"Landscape architects who work with infrastructure projects will appreciate the broad look the author Hillary Brown takes at what’s needed to make infrastructure work in the modern world."
(Landscape Architecture Magazine)

"[Next Generation Infrastructure] argues that even in the absence of federal will, we can reduce our carbons, protect our resources, plan for climate change and improve our milieu, all while saving money and reaping greater social benefits."
(LOEBlog)

"Hillary Brown understands that—for our grandchildren's sake—we must rebuild America and, in doing so, re-imagine our interconnected infrastructure systems to make them more efficient, environmentally safe, and resilient in this age of global urbanization. This fascinating and important book should be required reading for our elected officials and policy-makers."
(Felix Rohatyn, Former Chairman, Municipal Assistance Corporation)

"Next Generation Infrastructure is a forward-thinking manifesto; a gold mine of useful examples of infrastructural solutions from around the globe. This is a must read for anyone concerned about our urban futures."
(Adele Naude Santos, FAIA, Dean, School of Architecture + Planning, Massachusetts Institute of Technology)

"America's ability to realize its full competitive potential and address its super-sized economic, social, and environmental challenges depends fundamentally on getting infrastructure right. This book reveals the enormous variety in how different sectors of infrastructure are designed, financed, governed and, as importantly, how it all works together."
(Robert Puentes, Director, Metropolitan Infrastructure Initiative, Brookings Institution)

"The bottom line-this is bold thinking about how to confront a looming problem of outdated and failing infrastructure systems that, if unresolved, could cripple the U.S. economy and lifestyle...Brown presents a positive and optimistic way forward, firmly grounded in current experience, pragmatic principles, and workable technology. If widely read, Next Generation Infrastructure can provide invaluable inspiration and guidance for next-generation decision makers."
(Urban Land)

"Next Generation Infrastructure: Principles for Post-Industrial Public Works is an inspiring argument for infrastructure that behaves like nature."
(ASLA's The Dirt)
