Full Description

4yo. 120pp, 208 photo ills and plans. Publisher’s printed wrappers, slightly worn and rubbed. Prof.Gerald Smart’s copy, with his faint pencil ownership inscription on upper cover.

The anodyne title conceals the fact that this comprises separate contributions on housing design and planning by Thomas Sharp, Frederick Gibberd and William Holford, Gibberd writing on “the design of residential areas” and Holford on “design in city centres”.
