Overview

Passionate about designing buildings and neighborhoods that quietly transform the urban environment, Torti Gallas is committed to improving cities, towns, and distressed communities throughout the United States and around the world. This fully illustrated book shows how they have combined the disciplines of architecture, planning, and urban design into a single practice, creating housing and mixed-use buildings that bring catalytic change to urban neighborhoods: the mixed-use apartment buildings, rowhouses, and single-family homes that comprise the fabric of a city. Their work hearkens back to a tradition that, before World War II, created some of the country’s finest neighborhoods, including Forest Hill Gardens in Queens, Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia, and Russian Hill in San Francisco. Featuring 60 built projects, this book shows how Torti Gallas is dedicated to raising the level of this architecture to a new high.
