About this title:

Synopsis: People & Places looks to the present state of place making, its precedents from the past, and the rapid cultural changes that leave us without precedents for the postindustrial electronic age. The Myers suggest that, as we look to the future, we need to value the past so we can make harmonious and continuous communities that are places for people in the future.

Exploring The Connections Between
People & Places

People & Places is for urban planners, housewives, architects, politicians, town council members, builders, anthropologists, sociologists and any student of human nature. John and Margaret Myers' backgrounds in architecture and child psychology, respectively, inform their groundbreaking treatise on the effects of place on individuals and society.

In exploring the reciprocal connections between humans' physical and psychological landscapes, People & Places offers a blueprint for those who want to understand their own connection to places they especially value and the deep-rooted source of these life-defining attachments. Through the study of what makes a person, drawing on developmental psychologist Erik Erikson's work, particularly his "eight ages of man," the book explores our early and lifelong needs and then relates these needs to places.
This book follows multiple case studies from planning through implementation stage by which the authors show how awareness of human need has empowered successful urban planning.

About the Author: JOHN R. MYER was born in Boston, Massachusetts. After serving in the Air Force, he entered Massachusetts Institute of Technology, graduating in 1952 with a bachelor's degree in architecture. From 1952 to 1954 John and his wife Margaret, studied and worked in Italy.
Upon returning to the United States, John combined the starting of his own firm with the teaching of architecture at MIT. His firm eventually became Arrowstreet Inc., and in time he became department head of architecture at MIT. Notable among his many buildings are the Boston Architectural Center and the Library at Marlboro College; John was co-head, with Kevin Lynch of the design team for Boston's Government Center and the Boston waterfront. More recently, he designed the Massachusetts State Archives.
MARGARET H. MYER was born in New Haven, Connecticut, and graduated from Wellesley College in 1950. She received her master's degree in social work and worked in child psychiatry at Tufts New England Medical Center, where she was Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry. She became a lecturer on psychology at Harvard Medical School while working at Cambridge Hospital and developing a private practice. The Myers retired to New Hampshire in 1996, built a house and barn, and began collaborating on this book.
