Colin Rowe is acknowledged to be the most influential figure in architectural theory in the last half of the 20th century. Although his contribution to the discipline and practice of urban design is equally important, there is no single text which specifically focuses on his work in this sphere. This book intends to address this omission by critically examining Rowe's urban design theory and its evolution, which began at the Cornell University Urban Design program in 1963 and continued until his death in 1999. The text features a score of previously unpublished essays by prominent scholars, educators and practitioners, many of whom were his students or close collaborators.

The Urban Design Legacy of Colin Rowe provides a window to explore past, present and future themes central to the discipline of urban design as seen through the critical lens of Colin Rowe and those who continue to define their creative work in relationship to that extraordinary intellect.

Book Features:
  • This book is for anyone seriously interested in the forces that shape the everyday environment of our cities, towns and suburbs, be they everyday citizen, student, aspiring community leader, academician or professional in real estate, architecture, landscape architecture or city planner.
  • An extensive collection of essays that trace the profound influence and legacy of one of the greatest thinkers in the twentieth century on the everyday world we inhabit and on the people who do, or do not, design it.
