It is a rare book that captures the zeitgeist of a particular period, and a rare writer who can present that spirit through references that range from art history to engineering, from architectural theory to pop culture. British-born author, critic, and cultural commentator Reyner Banham is generally regarded by many as the finest architecture and design critic of his generation, if not of all time.

The Largest Art: A Measured Manifesto for a Plural Urbanism Book

A manifesto for designing cities – Architectural Publication by MIT Press, Cambridge, MA, USA

MIT professor’s new book calls for a more pluralistic, democratic vision of the city.

“The city is a people’s art, a shared experience,” a Philadelphia architect and planner named Edmund Bacon once wrote, adding that any urban designer’s job was to “conceive an idea, implant it, and nurture its growth in the collective minds of the community.”
