This book is a critical reappraisal of contemporary theories of urban planning and design and of the role of the architect-planner in an urban context.
The authors, rejecting the grand utopian visions of "total planning" and "total design," propose instead a "collage city" which can accommodate a whole range of utopias in miniature.
