Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0786496045, Paperback)Of all the elements of a neighborhood, the pattern of streets and their infrastucture is the most enduring. Given the 20th century's additions to the range of transportation means--trains, subways, buses, trucks, bicycles, motorbikes and cars--a fresh look at the streets is warranted. This book contributes a new system of neighborhood design with a focus on contemporary street patterns.
Drawing lessons from historic and current development, it proposes a new pattern more fitting for modern culture, addressing such issues as walkability, mobility, health, safety, security, cost and greenhouse gas emission. Case studies of national and international neighborhoods and districts based on the new network model demonstrate its application in real-world situations. This adaptive system will enable people to maximize the benefits of living in both new and existing neighborhoods.
