Would recommend for anyone studying urban design or doing urban studies. Exceptionally clear and detailed, good organization and categorization easy to follow. Very good overview of urban design theories and discourses. Though may seem outdated most academic references are before the 2000s, but in reality to this date 2018 a lot of the urban design (even built environment) practices are based on those ideals although objectives, agendas, technologies may have changed things slightly. Good images...
I have read the book, relating to my thesis topic. The book has a good approach to look at urban design from a visual and perceptual dimension. However a more objective approach to this area of subjective matter is required as a whole.
There were some very detailed discussions off the different aspects and challenges of urban design. However, I would've liked more in depth discussion of case studies and more examples outside of the US and Europe.
