Book Description

April 1 2009 9057270609 978-9057270604

This enticing manual shows how to design sustainable, carfree cities that meet the needs and desires of their inhabitants. Based on walking, bicycling, and public transport, this comprehensive handbook offers a fresh look at city design. The book proposes methods to achieve aesthetically pleasing and practical, carfree living environments. From urban planning and neighborhood design to squares and building layouts, the author argues that narrower streets, four-story buildings, and interior courtyards offer a higher quality of life. A design process is proposed that directly involves future residents. Illustrative case examples and comparative analysis of 18 urban spaces are also included.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Central Design Element to Sustainable Human Future Oct. 28 2009
By Matthew Thyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If only for the photographs that grace this work anyone lucky enough to lay hands on this thought provoking and insightful vision of a sustainable human future should be happy thumbing through the pages. The fact that Crawford's beautiful photographic collection happens to be juxtaposed with a discerning and detailed conceptualization of a lifestyle which most of the world hasn't yet imagined makes the "Carfree Design Manual" to a truly revolutionary oeuvre.

Crawford has created a framework that if adopted by cities in part or in its entirety would result in an arrangement of structures and artifacts that would not only be considerably more sustainable but beautiful. This book should be in the library of anyone interested in living in a better place.
