Mark Hinshaw has a proposition for Americans: Come out of the bunker, throw open the gates, and meet the neighborhood.
In this passionate appeal, he introduces those who have already done just that and explains what cities can do to make true urbanism possible. He rejoices in the growing number of people rejecting sterile, paint-by-numbers subdivisions in favor of vibrant and unpredictable urban neighborhoods.
This vivid account of cities small and large emerging from the cobwebs of late 20th century development will show communities with lingering antiurban tendencies how to embrace density as destiny.
A must-read urban design book for anyone who cares about cities.
