New Book: Urbanism Without Effort

Urbanism Without Effort

This highly illustrated E-ssential explores the idea that to create vibrant, sustainable urban areas for the long term, we must first understand “what happens naturally when people congregate in cities—innate, unprompted interactions of urban dwellers with each other and their surrounding urban and physical environment.” Wolfe elaborates on the perspective that the underlying rationales for urban policy, planning and regulation are best understood from a historical perspective and in a better understanding of the everyday uses of urban space. He draws on his professional experiences as a land use and environmental lawyer, providing compelling vignettes from everyday urban life.
