Overview

Built for Change is one of the most thorough evaluations ever conducted of the physical transformation of an American city. It is at once a model for historical research in urban architecture, a critique of urban design and residential building practices, and an advocacy text on zoning, preservation, and development.

Moudon focuses on design strategies that can preserve the traditional urban fabric while still accommodating new buildings. Her work in fact, has played an important role in the drafting of new planning codes for residential areas of San Francisco.

Anne Vernez Moudon is Professor in the College of Architecture and Urban Planning and Director of the Urban Design Program at the University of Washington
