About this book

The author discusses transportation, housing equity, job distribution, economic development and ecological systems issues and synthesizes his knowledge and research into a simple-to-understand set of urban design rules.

Professor Patrick Condon uses his impressive knowledge of urban planning and his years of research and teaching at the University of British Columbia to create a comprehensive set of rules that may help to secure our future on this planet. His rules are simple and realistic, and are supported by extensive data. Although the rules themselves arae not new ideas, Condon's ability to simplify and apply them to curent urban design situations is impressive and inspiring...Well-written, concise, and thorough, this should not only be a required reading for students, but should be on the shelves of every planner, developer, architect, landscape architect and engineer in the city...Condon should be highly-praised for his ability to take the world's most complex problem and outline a set of realistic, and exciting solutions. --Ellen Zeigler"Re: place Magazine" (04/13/2011)
