About this title


Today in architecture and city planning, Friedman (who has lived and practiced architecture in France for many years) observes that there are no strict rules that allow an accurate prediction of the results of a particular decision. Instead of the intuitive rules or "tricks of the trade" used by both professions, Friedman proposes a complete list of objective rules and risks involved as choices are made among several million possible plans for living space.
