Exhaustive yet wonderfully accessible, this book documents the many terms and words that will determine the shape and design of the towns and cities of the future. It is also utterly relevant and necessary for a complete understanding of the social and architectural spaces of today. Everyday words such as "avenue, boulevard, park, and district," as well as less-commonly-used terms such as "sustainability, carbon-neutral, or Bilbao Effect" are used with a great variety of meanings that causes confusion amongst citizens, city officials and other decision makers when trying to design viable neighborhoods, towns and cities. To ameliorate this situation, the author has spent the past decade researching the entomology of almost 700 words to develop a common language that creates clarity, predictability, and certainty. This book defines each word or term visually by showing its historic use, current application, and best examples. The book is organized alphabetically, similarly to a dictionary, with each entry described words, diagrams, photographs, and comparative metrics when needed. Heavily illustrated, with terms ranging from "A" and "B" Streets to Zeitgeist, Brise-Soleil to Palazzo, Promenade and Polycentric to Xeriscape, The Language of Towns and Cities is a landmark work destined to become a classic.
