    A lengthy, ponderous discussion of what cities are, what they have been, and what they can be. There are interesting moments, and it really makes you think about how cities are shaped, but it was a bit textbookish for me to really get much out of. The arguments there were seemed less like arguments made out of passion and more like arguments made out of necessity, as if Lynch was being pressed into having an opinion. However, his "The Image of the City" remains necessary reading. Start there.

    Speaks about the various factors that affect the spatial arrangement of a city. According to the author, few of the factors playing a major role in the spatial arrangement of cities include- vitality, sense, fit, access, control, efficiency and justice. Cities could get arranged due to these factors or these factors could be observed as characteristics of the reason a settlement has grown. The author gives a convincing statement with several examples to state each of his points and although this Speaks about the various factors that affect the spatial arrangement of a city.

Cities could get arranged due to these factors or these factors could be observed as characteristics of the reason a settlement has grown. The author gives a convincing statement with several examples to state each of his points and although this book was written in a time and place different from now, it is seen to be applicable to cities and towns all around the world even in the 21st century. If you were to pick up any of the author's concepts/ observations and look around you - one is bound to find similar examples in today's world. Practical and structured work for city planning reference. We had to read this book and write an essay on a topic themed around the concept of this book for city planning course.
