Revue de presse

“ Cities of Tomorrow remains the definitive story of modern Euro–American planning. The seamless integration of new information and perspectives in this latest edition reaffirms its status as a classic, compelling and extraordinarily readable synthesis.” Robert Freestone, University of New South Wales <!––end––> "Peter Hall′s new edition of Cities of Tomorrow is better than ever. With extraordinary skill he weaves the separate strands of planning of the last century into a rich tapestry that vividly displays its intricate links, perceptively portrays the foundations of today′s profession yet cleverly reveals the field′s enduring questions and concerns. To do this in one volume is a work of genius!" Genie Birch, University of Pennsylvania This classic history of modern urban planning has now been updated for the new century with a third edition. Cities of Tomorrow is an excellent guide to the urban development of the 20th century, and a good platform from which to view the evolution of the 21st. Amanda Huron, Urban Land

Quatrième de couverture

Cities of Tomorrow is a critical history of planning in theory and practice in the twentieth century, as well as of the social and economic problems and opportunities that gave rise to it. Trenchant, perceptive, global in coverage, this book is an unrivalled account of its crucial subject. The third edition of Cities of Tomorrow is comprehensively revised to take account of abundant new literature published since its original appearance, and to view the 1990s in historical perspective. This is the definitive edition, reviewing the development of the modern planning movement over the entire span of the twentieth century.

"Practical men, who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influences, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist": thus Keynes, in a celebrated passage at the end of the General Theory. Lire la première page

Peter Hall (Professor of City and Regional Planning at UC Berkeley) has written many books on urban planning, and this 1988 book is a wonderful summary and history of various progressive "new cities" movements from 1880 to the present.

Hall includes chapters on such subjects as "Cities of Imagination," "Reactions to the Nineteenth-Century Slum City," "The Garden City Solution," "The Birth of Regional Planning," "The City Beautiful Movement," "The Corbusian Radiant City," "The Automobile Suburb," and more.

He begins by noting that "The really striking point is that many, though by no means all, of the early visions of the planning movement stemmed from the anarchist movement, which flourished in the last decades of the nineteenth century and the first years of the twentieth."

Hall opines that "despite doughty competition, Ebenezer Howard (inventor of the "Garden City" concept) is the most important single character in this entire tale." He also observes that "The Stein-Wright Radburn cities are unquestionably the most important American contribution to the garden-city tradition. True, on strict criteria, like their European counterparts they fail to qualify; all three are now long since submerged in the general sprawl of suburbia, and to seek them out on the ground demands a good map and some degree of determination. But as garden suburbs, they mark perhaps the most significant advance in design beyond the standards set by Unwin and Parker."

Despite his enthusiasm, Hall is capable of objectivity: "the new towns are self-evidently good places to live and above all to grow up in; they do exist in harmony with their surrounding countryside and the sheer mindless ugliness of the worst of the old sprawl has been eliminated. But it is not quite as rich and worthy and high-minded as they hoped: a good life, but not a new civilization."

This book will be of considerable interest to persons interested in urban planning, the New Urbanism, Garden Cities, Ecocities, Village Homes, etc.
Cities Tomorrow 7 mai 2013

Cities of Tomorrow is thoroughly researched. I have read several books on Cities and evolution of Cities, the culture, the work, the societies, the sense of community. I am studying what is a city, how the cities are understood. I am working on a solution to the NY and the damage that was done by Hurricane Sandy.

The solution rest with the understanding the City, the community, the access, the livability and of course the safe refuge and the functional infrastructure.

Unfortunately I didn't get the project but I think reading this book, and Lewis Mumford etc. was an experience that elevated my solutions to some of the hazzards that needed more than just infracture but a soul for the community.

A reference classic to approach with a critical eye the history of urban planning. Probably what Peter Hall is most recognized for...

My university is using this book as a text as part of our study of Planning History. It is a very good read and is unlike a textbook. Outlines planning history from 1880 to 1980.

Well written history of urbanization 24 février 2014

I would have given this history five starts but occasionally the articles were redundant. The organization of the chapters might be improved. A well written and readable textbook.
