"What can be done to create more efficient, safe, fulfilling, and livable cities?" In the face of worsening traffic snarls, an endangered environment, urban decay, and other ills of the late 20th century, a premier landscape architect shows us a workable conceptual model for the future city. Simonds views the city as an organic whole, analyzes its components, and shows how cities can be made vital, functional, and beautiful - with protected areas of field and forest, and "blue and green open space frameworks".
