  • Finding Lost Space

    The problem of lost space, or the inadequate use of space, afflicts most urban centers today. The automobile, the effects of the Modern Movement in architectural design, urban-renewal and zoning policies, the dominance of private over public interests, as well as changes in land use in the inner city have resulted in the loss of values and meanings that were traditionally associated with urban open space. Finding Lost Space offers a comprehensive and systematic examination of the crisis of the contemporary city and the means by which this crisis can be addressed.
