Synopsis:

"The book is nothing short of a tour de force and should be required reading for landscape urbanists and landscape architects. Students and general audiences of design and planning will find it difficult to go back into their disciplinary silos."
-Alan Berger, MIT

"Combinatory Urbanism delves into armatures and manouvers which is what an urban mechanism-a city-is made up of. Looking at structure, not style, Mayne actually inhabits style-if we redefine the word to suggest invention engaging with logic. In so doing, he creates new categories of 'place'."
-Peter Cook

"Mayne has produced a powerful view of how an architect can re-envision the city. Combinatory Urbanism is not just an architect's summary of his latest or greatest projects, but a true challenge to all of us in the design community-to think differently, challenge the norms, and seek new ground in the form of open collaborations for re-envisioning the city."
-Philip Enquist, SOM

"The Swiss build the Gottard tunnel; the Chinese move the Yellow River; the Koreans suggest connecting the Han and the Nakdong; and someone whispers re-build the Mississippi Delta. Combinatory Architecture is Combinatory Urbanism: colossal scale; sophisticated technique; re-imagined environments; re-invented sociologies. Mayne's collective form points the circuitous way."
-Eric Moss, Director, SCI-Arc

"Not since Urbanisme or Learning from Las Vegas have the stakes for urban design been raised so quickly and so high."
-Albert Pope, Rice University

"Combinatory Urbanism is a perfect example of why Mayne continues to stay on the cutting edge of architecture and urban planning. Educators and students alike should take note of Mayne's innovative approach to creating a more sustainable, just, economically productive society."
-Jeremy Rifkin, The Foundation on Economic Trends
