Cities, Design and Evolution

'This book provides a very helpful introduction to the perspective that cities are organic and evolutionary. Stephen Marshall explains that it may be a false assumption that a city is any more designable than a society or ecosystem in the first place, and he explains how complex organic order is created in nature. His arguments are easily understood and leaves the reader with a thirst to learn more about the science of cities.'

About the book

Why does modern planning sometimes create urban environments that are less attractive and functional than the 'organic urbanism' of traditional cities? Cities Design and Evolution investigates how cities are put together. Illustrated with some of my urban photography.
