From Our Editors

The accomplished urban designer Jonathan Barnett devotes his latest book to exploring ways of ameliorating the split between the 'old city', which used to be the center of things, and the 'new city' on the metropolitan periphery. Barnett discusses an impressively broad variety of recent plans and designs for controlling sprawl, improving urban centers and edge cities, and fitting new buildings in with old.
