Walkable City

Through Paris, New York City, Toronto, North Vancouver, and Singapore, this examination depicts how the architectural evolutions of major cities have changed the lives of their ordinary citizens -- in both positive and negative ways. According to this account, making a metropolis navigable by foot again is crucial, and it suggests how people can reorganise their personal lives in order to make this possible again. From Baron George Eugene Haussmann and his ruthless transformation of Paris to the redevelopment of North America to adapt to automobiles, this chronicle investigates the dramatic changes that have occurred in the past 200 years, providing a valuable critique of the ideas regarding how cities should be designed.
