In this radical new look at the theory and practice of urban design, Christopher Alexander asks why our modern cities so often lack a sense of natural growth, and suggests a set of rules and guidelines by which we can inject that 'organic' character back into our High Streets, buildings, and squares. At a time when so many of Britain's inner cities are undergoing, or are in need of, drastic renovation, Christopher Alexander's detailed account of his own experiments in urban-renewal in San Francisco makes thought-provoking reading.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'immensely compelling ... It is simply written and illustrated, successfully avoiding the opaque jargon and pretentious gloss often found in such publications. It is a welcome addition to the tiny body of literature on urban design and an essential addition to the 'elbow libraries' of students and practitioners.' Francis Tibbalds, RIBA Journal
'is of great value in continuing a major process extending back over twenty years' David Gosling, University of Sheffield, Town Planning Review
