“[A] useful reference, a collection to sample as one is introduced to the many ways the city can be imagined.”
— R. A. Beauregard, Choice
“[G]rapples with how images of cities change”
“One task for this volume is to help planners navigate this new media-induced era of city imaging. It is based on a colloquium offered at MIT’s Department of Urban Studies and Planning in 1998 and is grounded in Lynch’s seminal work, The Image of the City… Students of image will be rewarded by spending time reading and reflecting on the MIT colloquium.”
—Greg Andranovich, Journal of Urban Affairs
"[D]elightful… easily readable, thoughtful, and instructive for anyone concerned with the design and planning of cities— [Kevin] Lynch would have found the essays fun, informative, and of broad value."
—D. Ryan, ARCADE—Architecture/Design in the Northwest
