The Monocle Guide to Building Better Cities

Author(s): Monocle

Architecture

Ever since its launch in 2007, Monocle has been passionate about improving our cities. Each year it compiles a Quality of Life Survey, which names the top 25 cities to call home, and across the issues it has inter- viewed the most productive mayors, looked at the metropolises putting pedestrians first, and met the people making room for parks, both pocket-sized and plush. In this impor- tant new book the magazine's editors unpack what makes a great city and how to fix one that's flagging. How do you fashion your own High Line, create the most covetable housing, or transform a grimy river into a glistening asset? Beautifully shot and illustrated, this is a book that takes the urbanism debate away from city hall and explains what's needed in ways that will inspire us all.
