Full Description

4to. 300pp, many photo ills and plans. Publisher’s cloth. No ownership inscription but Prof.Gerald Smart’s copy.

A good overview by Sir Frederick Gibberd (1908-84), architect and town planning specialist, of the principles of modern town design, drawing on recent examples in the USA and in Europe as well as in Britain. It benefits from its author’s involvement in the design of Harlow New Town, built to Gibberd’s master plan from 1949 onwards. First published in 1953.
