38 p., soft cover. These quarterly publications are beautiful and thought provoking. The editor, Mildred Friedman, explains that this issue presents "a young architect's romantic, episodic view of American history told with references to urban evolution, architecture, and social change. Three cities-San Francisco, Columbus, Ohio, and New York-are the subjects of this study." Contents are an essay on "Emerging America," chapters on the three cities, and a closing section entitled "A Model for Three Cities." The last includes a fold-out with drawings, floor plans, etc. Black-and-white illustrations and a few full-color photographs; bibliography. Fine. Bookseller Inventory # 62084dq
