This enticing manual shows how to design sustainable, carfree
cities that meet the needs and desires of their inhabitants. Based
on walking, bicycling, and public transport, this comprehensive
handbook offers a fresh look at city design. The book proposes
methods to achieve aesthetically pleasing and practical, carfree
living environments. From urban planning and neighborhood design to
squares and building layouts, the author argues that narrower
streets, four-story buildings, and interior courtyards offer a
higher quality of life. A design process is proposed that directly
involves future residents. Illustrative case examples and
comparative analysis of 18 urban spaces are also included.
