Tony Hiss's lively book takes a considered look at a variety of landscapes, from New York's Central Park to the Great Plains, and points out why the design of some places gives us the creeps, while that of others liberates our senses. Hiss suggests how cities and suburbs can be shaped to keep (or rediscover) their connection to the natural landscape, and, more important, how--for once--our expansion into a place need not mean its destruction. There's much food for thought in The Experience of Place, and a dozen starting points for the reinhabitation our lands require.From the Publisher:
"Should be required reading for all planners, developers, and city administrators."--The New York Times Book Review
