Town Planning in Practice: An Introduction to the Arts of Designing Cities and Suburbs

£14.99

Product description

Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: Very Good.
Excerpt from Town Planning in Practice: An Introduction to the Art of Designing Cities and Suburbs Occurred to me that it would probably be of use if some of the maps, photographs, and other material which I had collected during some years study and practice of what I have ventured to call the art of town planning could be put together and published. Hence this book. The spare time at my disposal has only enabled me to deal in an introductory and imperfect manner with the different points raised; but I am hopeful that those who do me the honour to read the text will find it at any rate sufficient to help them to glean from the illustrations many of the valuable suggestions which I believe them to contain. I have made free use of ideas gathered from many sources which it is impossible for me to acknowledge in detail; but I would like here to express my indebtedness to those with whom I have collaborated, particularly to Mr. Barry Parker; also to Mr. Edwin L. Lutyens, whose suggestions in connection with the Hampstead Garden Suburb work have been invaluable. My thanks are due to many whose writings on the subject I have found helpful - Mr. Horsfall, Dr. Stiibben, Mr. C. Mulford Robin son, Professor Geddes, Mr. Phene Spiers, Professor Schultze Naumburg, Mr. Halsey Ricardo, Mr. Reginald Blomfield, to mention the names of a few only of those of whom I think with gratitude in this connection. I would like also to record my appreciation of the way in which my requests for permission to use valuable illustrations and other material have throughout been met. These are, I hope, all acknow ledged in their places. I am particularly indebted to Dr. Stiibben and to the editor and publisher of Der Stadtebau, also to Herr berlepsch-valendas, and to the officials of many German towns, who have given me the greatest assistance at different times, and have always been willing to help an Englishman to understand their town-planning methods and to profit by their experience. Last, and by no means least, my acknowledgments are due to many of the members of my own staff who have co - operated with me in various ways. Without Mr. Wade s charming and imagina tive pictures and the very useful illustrative sketches made by Mr. Mottram, or wanting the numerous diagrams prepared by Mr. Hollis and others, the book would have been but imperfectly illustrated.
