Synopsis: Why is it that certain streets and neighborhoods are alluring while others are entirely forgettable? Many times something doesn't feel quite right, yet you can't articulate exactly what is wrong.

This clear and convincingly argued book explains the principles of design that make houses feel instantly more inviting, streets feel welcoming, and cities and towns more livable. It is essential reading for planners, builders, city officials, architects, real estate professionals and developers. Homeowners and designers will also gain a new appreciation of how the application of design principles can profoundly improve the way a place feels. Written by Marianne Cusato with contributions from visionaries Andrés Duany, Sarah Susanka, Richard Moe, Geoffrey Mouen and more, The Value of Design illustrates how design affects not only the monetary value of our homes and communities but also how it can increase our quality of life and reduce our impact on the environment.

About the Author: Marianne Cusato is an expert in the field of architectural design. Her work focuses on the elements of good design in homes and communities, and how design effects the quality of our lives and the sustainability of the earth's resources.

Ranked the No. 4 most influential person in the home-building industry in Buildermagazine's annual "Power On 50" list, Cusato and her design principles are changing the landscape of the housing industry. This book was written in partnership with James Hardie, Inc., the world s leading manufacturer of fiber-cement building materials and creator of educational resources that help builders, developers and city officials build better, more sustainable communities.
