Suburban nation : the rise of sprawl and the decline of the American Dream by Andres Duany( Book )

22 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 2,215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Founders of the Congress for the New Urbanism, Andres Duany and Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk assess sprawl's costs to society, be they ecological, economic, aesthetic, or social. This book is a lively critical lament, and an entertaining lesson on the distinctions between postwar suburbia - characterized by housing clusters, strip shopping centers, office parks, and parking lots - and the traditional neighborhoods that were built as a matter of course until mid-century. It indicts the design and development industries for the fact that America no longer builds towns. Most important, though, it is a book that also offers us solutions."--Jacket
The new civic art : elements of town planning by Andres Duany( Book )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book updates and thoroughly details the most important recent trends in civic architecture and planning, but does not limit itself to this; time-honored precedents, in some cases centuries old, are referenced. This massive, encyclopedic display, drawn from over 200 international sources, has been carefully selected for use not only by trained professionals but for everyone involved in the shaping of cities and the built environment. Numerous examples culled from the works of such notable architects as Arata Isozaki, Frank Gehry, Robert A.M. Stern, Rob Krier, and many others cover all aspects of the environment, from large regional concerns down to details of the private realm."--Jacket
The smart growth manual by Andres Duany( Book )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Everyone is calling for smart growth...but what exactly is it? In The Smart Growth Manual, two leading city planners provide a thorough answer. From the expanse of the metropolis to the detail of the window box, they address the pressing challenges of urban development with easy-to-follow advice and broad array of best practices. With their landmark book Suburban Nation, Andres Duany and Jeff Speck "set forth more clearly than anyone has done in our time the elements of good town planning" (The New Yorker). With this long-awaited companion volume, the authors have organized the latest contributions of new urbanism, green design, and healthy communities into a comprehensive handbook, fully illustrated with the built work of the nation's leading practitioners. -- Product Description
City rules : how regulations affect urban form by Emily Talen( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

City Rules offers a challenge to students and professionals in urban planning, design, and policy to change the rules of city-building, using regulations to reinvigorate, rather than stifle, our communities. Emily Talen demonstrates that regulations are a primary detriment to the creation of a desirable urban form. While many contemporary codes encourage sprawl and even urban blight, that hasn't always been the case-and it shouldn't be in the future. Talen provides a visually rich history, showing how certain eras used rules to produce beautiful, walkable, and sustainable communities, while others created just the opposite. She makes complex regulations understandable, demystifying city rules like zoning and illustrating how written codes translate into real-world consequences. Most importantly, Talen proposes changes to these rules that will actually enhance communities' freedom to develop unique spaces
Tactical urbanism : short-term action for long-term change by Mike Lydon( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tactical urbanism, written by Mike Lydon and Anthony Garcia, two founders of the movement, promises to be the foundational guide for urban transformation. The authors begin with an in-depth history of the Tactical urbanism movement and its place among other social, political, and urban planning trends. A detailed set of case studies, from guerilla wayfinding signs in Raleigh, to pavement transformed into parks in San Francisco, to a street art campaign leading to a new streetcar line in El Paso, demonstrate the breadth and scalability of tactical urbanism interventions. Finally, the book provides a detailed toolkit for conceiving, planning, and carrying out projects, including how to adapt them based on local needs and challenges. Tactical urbanism will inspire and empower a new generation of engaged citizens, urban designers, land use planners, architects, and policymakers to become key actors in the transformation of their communities."--Publisher description
Landscape urbanism and its discontents : dissimulating the sustainable city by Andres Duany( Book )

12 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Landscape Urbanism and its Discontents explores the debate around two competing paradigms. Landscape Urbanism is conceived as ecological in terms of natural processes, while New Urbanism engages ecology in terms of sociocultural processes. In this collection of essays, influential urban theorists delve into the tension between the two perspectives. While there should be significant overlap between Landscape Urbanism and New Urbanism, the former has assumed prominence amongst environmental administrators and critical theorists, whereas the latter has approached paradigmatic status in the market and among planning professionals. Given that both these power bases are at the forefront of sustainable urban design, the analysis -- and potential reconciliation -- offered by these essays may help catalyze a resolution to the various crises besetting the new century
