Pressestimmen"At once a primer on how architecture, urban design, and metropolitan planning can be pursued in a key that resonates with sustainability and wise stewardship of the environment and a compelling polemic on why such thinking will produce better places to pursue our livelihoods and live out our lives." - Alex Krieger, Harvard Graduate School of Design "Repairing the American Metropolis is written with such exquisite clarity and confidence, it is easy to overlook that Doug Kelbaugh is arguing for nothing less than a fundamental reconsideration of contemporary American architecture and planning."--Don Prowler, Princeton University "This is the most sophisticated critical presentation of the New Urbanism to be found anywhere."--Andres Duany, Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company.
