Herein one can find the most articulate and insightful debate on Urbanism to surface in decades. The issues raised should be at the heart of any serious dialog about the human prospect. ---Peter Calthorpoe, author of Urbanism in the Age of Climate Change Landscape urbanism propaganda famously vaunts its own doctrinal incompleteness, indeterminateness, openness, while paradoxically broadcasting a possible maturation. In this unique compendium formidable antagonists pay the Landscape urbanism gobbledygook more attention than it is capable to sustain and scrupulously expose the extent to which LU is but old modernist wine presented in new greenwashed bottles. ---Leon Krier, Louis Kahn Visiting Professor, Yale University SOA2013 This important collection of essays lays bare the comprehensive wrongheadedness at the foundation of Landscape Urbanist theory, from its apparently unconscious preference of the symbolic over the real to its surprisingly outdated conception of man's proper relationship to nature. We've known for decades that the best way to protect the landscape is to stay the heck away from it, collecting ourselves in dense, walkable cities. Any alternative to this time-tested model is still carbon-belching sprawl, however well it drains. ---Jeff Speck, author of Walkable City: How Downtown Can Save America, One Step at a Time.
