The Language of Towns and Cities: A Visual Dictionary

The development of the second edition of The Language of Towns and Cities. The original book coined the term "encyclo-dictionary," an apt name for this volume that defines over 700 words and phrases related to the built environment with beautifully illustrated explanations. The second edition will add an additional 600 pages that complement the first edition, which include: best practices for active-living environments, renovation strategies for aging-in-place, suburban retrofit strategies, and alternate transit and transport systems.
