Providing unique, accessible lessons on urban design, this title in the bestselling 101 Things I Learned® series is a perfect resource for students, recent graduates, general readers, and even seasoned professionals.
Students of urban design often find themselves lost between books that are either highly academic or overly formulaic, leaving them with few tangible tools to use in their design projects. 101 Things I Learned® in Urban Design School fills this void with provocative, practical lessons on urban space, street types, pedestrian experience, managing the design process, the psychological, social, cultural, and economic ramifications of physical design decisions, and more.

Editorial Reviews

“At moments the book evokes Christopher Alexander’s A Pattern Language; at other times, it reads like aphorisms from a TED Talk; and yet at other times, it is reminiscent of desk crits in school….The authors use jargon-free language [to] demystify urban design…a good reminder that much of what we, as designers, take as self-evident can be new to those not steeped in urban design and that complex concepts can be communicated in a clear, concise way. —Architecture Boston
