The Shape of the City
Toronto Struggles With Modern PlanningBook - 1993
Sewell explains how Toronto was subjected to the same fraudulent urban development theories and practices as other North American cities, and how it has survived them to become a model for sane growth. He traces the ideals to their origin in the 19th century, the epidemic of modern planning after World War II, its rejection, the creation of alternatives, and the lingering problem of the suburbs. Paper edition (unseen), $18.95. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
