As an architecture student interested in the "art" of city planning, I found this book fascinating! Gives Le Corbusier's "radical" views and ideas plenty of substantive support. It is not only a book of design theory, but a book of urban history. Even if you're not too fond of Corbusier's work, this is a must-read for anyone interested in architecture!

This is written by the man who foresaw and created the city of today and its planning. What seemed like fantasies in the 1920's is familiar today.

The book was more damaged then what I expected. But it doesn't matter since it was only on the outside.
Besides that, I find the book very interesting if you want to find out more about the modernist age and

BOOK WAS WRITTEN in 1929.

This book explores the state of cities in the early 20th century and what needs to be done to make them more efficient. It includes many diagrams and pictures (almost on every page!)and sets out two main visions for a "modern" city (in 1929).

However, the book gives little info about current planning ideas and theories.
