Overview

Foundations in Urban Planning - Hegemann and Peets: The American Vitruvius: an Architects' Handbook of Civic Art by Werner Hegemann, Elbert Peets

Hegemann and Peets' classic work on urban planning is an encyclopedic compilation of over twelve hundred illustrations, photographs, and diagrams. Their work was first published in 1922 and presented for the first time a comprehensive survey of what we would consider modern urban planning or urban design principles. Their work, often referred to simply as 'Civic Art,' remained out of print for a number of years. This compact edition, part of the 'Fundamentals in Urban Planning' series, presents the full text and graphics of the original edition in an affordable and portable version.

I. The Modern Revival of Civic Art
