Overview

Uniting a roster of authors chosen from wide-ranging disciplines, this study is the first to examine the influence of Disneyland on both our built environment and our architectural imagination. Tracing the relationship of the Disney parks to their historical forebears, Designing Disney's Theme Parks: The Architecture of Reassurance charts Disneyland's evolution from one man's personal dream to a multinational enterprise, a process in which the Disney "magic" has moved ever closer to the real world. This is a unique perspective on one of the great post-war American icons.

Editorial Reviews

Merle Rubin
Reading this highly detailed book on Disneyland is not exactly a walk in the park. But it is, undoubtedly, a valuable book, full of good material, and approaches its subject with an attitude that is appropriately appreciative, without being overawed. —The Christian Science Monitor
