What does the city's form actually mean to the people who live there? What can the city planner do to make the city's image more vivid and memorable to the city dweller? To answer these questions, Mr. Lynch, supported by studies of Los Angeles, Boston, and Jersey City, formulates a new criterion -- imageability -- and shows its potential value as a guide for the building and rebuilding of cities. The wide scope of this study leads to an original and vital method for the evaluation of city form. The architect, the planner, and certainly the city dweller will all want to read this book.

Review: The Image of the City

Κριτική χρηστών  - Constantine Ronquillo - Goodreads

my mentor stressed out that I should read this Kevin Lynch piece, and that this will help mould our thought process to the better, turned out she's right. A must read for urbanists and architects. I still recommend Delirius New York by Rem Koolhaas... Ανάγνωση ολόκληρης της κριτικής

While the case studies can be a bit dry at times the first couple of chapters should be on everybody's reading list. Ανάγνωση ολόκληρης της κριτικής
