Editorial Reviews

Review

"One of Chuck Wolfe's great gifts is an extraordinary photographer's eye for capturing visual images of everyday, but evocative, city life. Another is an uncommonly strong intellectual grounding in urban planning theory. In Urbanism Without Effort, he combines the two in unique fashion to show us how unplanned places can often teach us more about great placemaking than planned ones."
  --Kaid Benfield, Director, Sustainable Communities, Natural Resources Defense Council

"Chuck's work is what happens when art meets science in placemaking. His talent for capturing places being themselves is so important in the placemaker's toolkit, yet can be missed if we are not paying attention. Lucky for us, Chuck is always paying attention and this book is the proof."
  --Dr. Katherine Loflin, Loflin Consulting Solutions, frequent lead consultant on creating next generation cities

 "Wolfe provides something rare in contemporary urbanist writing - rich illustrations and examples from real life - both historical and current. His writing about the past and the future of urban form offers readers inspiration, historical context, and a better understanding of how a sustainable, inviting urban environment is created." 
  --Eco-Libris 

"Readers will come away motivated to find, experience and document their own favourite places find ways to apply effortless urbanism in their own neighbourhood."
  --Spacing | Canada

"If you like thinking about the intersection of people and place, you may like this attractively priced book a great deal."
  --NRDC Switchboard Blog

From the Back Cover

"Mr.Wolfe helped me understand the intimate relationship between a city and thecitizens that inhabit it. He stressed how observing these relationships shouldprovide the basis for understanding good design and should inform governmentsabout the development and use of land use regulations and architectural designand not the other way around.  Mostimpactful was the way Mr. Wolfe was able to deliver this message by capturingamazing images of everyday city life from all parts of the globe!"
 --BenjaminD. Frost, Esq., Director of Public Affairs, New Hampshire Housing FinanceAuthority

"...a book of inspiration and aspiration. It makes the reader yearn for places with soul."
  --Better Cities and Towns
