Book Review: The New Civic Art

Witold Rybczynski reviews the book "The New Civic Art: Elements of Town Planning" by Andrés Duany, Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, and Robert Alminana.

Following in the footsteps of a 1992 publication known as "The Civic Art", the book by Andrés Duany, Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, and Robert Alminana titled "The New Civic Art: Elements of Town Planning" copies the original's "encyclopedic format, its international scope, its blending of past and present, and its eclecticism. [However] the New Civic Art is a manual, not a history book...Most readers will discover something here...Libeskind and company should read this book. "
