"The wisest, clearest introduction I know to the art and science of designing cities."— Robert Campbell, Pulitzer Prize-winning Boston Globe architecture critic

Featuring projects that have won The American Institute of Architects' (AIA) National Honor Awards for Urban Design in recent years, this is a comprehensive book of tools and information on urban design. Endorsed by the AIA and written by the 2005 and 2006 chairs, respectively, of the AIA's Regional and Urban Design Committee, this unique guide provides urban designers, architects, and students with contemporary urban design paradigms and principles, processes, and design tools for various project types and scales, such as downtowns, neighborhoods, Main Street revitalization, waterfronts, and college campuses.
