Hi people!

Just finished reading Deyan Sudjic's "100 mile city". Most informative and thought-provoking accounts of what's going on in our world - for those of us who are interested in more than the limitations of a single building or project.

I thouroughly enjoyed the whole book - but for pragmatic purposes:
- Chapter 1 is a concise historic outline of urban design and planning theory.
- Chapter 2 tells you why the developer has so much more say than you [the architect].
- Chapter 3 gives an account of the different tacks taken by architects since the demise of modernism.
- Chapter 4 is upsetting because it says only the French are capable of the totalitarianism needed for "real" effective city planning.

Read the book!
