Makeshift Metropolis

Professor and Slate architecture critic Witold Rybczynski discusses how current urban planning ideas have evolved from 20th century movements such as City Beautiful, the Garden City, and the ideas of Frank Lloyd Wright and Jane Jacobs. In Makeshift Metropolis: Ideas About Cities, he looks at urban planning for the twenty-first century—creating a new kind of city with mixed-use developments, downtown living, diversity, density, and liveliness.
