Summary
  • Common Place is about how we can develop community and create convivial and sustainable places in the face of disjointed and fast-placed growth. It offers strategies for reclaiming and improving our neighborhoods and cities, which today are increasingly dominated by fear and disintegration and the automobile. Douglas Kelbaugh offers here a personal, passionate statement of how architecture and urban design can enrich our lives. At the heart of the book are summaries of eight design workshops, or charrettes, each consisting of five days of brainstorming by university students, community leaders, and design professionals. The charrettes apply design concepts to real problems such as housing, transportation, and suburban sprawl. Thousands of hours of creative effort have produced a blueprint for the Seattle region that is pertinent to other regions
  • Bridging academic theory and on-the-ground practice, Common Place is an indispensable book for designers, planners, city officials, developers, environmentalists, and citizens interested in understanding and shaping the American metropolis
