Time magazine noted that Seaside "could be the most astonishing design achievement of its era...." Visions of Seaside is the most comprehensive book on the history and development of the nation's first and most influential New Urbanist town. The book chronicles the thirty-year history of the evolution and development of Seaside, Florida, its global influence on town planning, and the resurgence of place-making in the built environment. Through a rich repository of historical materials and writings, the book chronicles numerous architectural and planning schemes, and outlines a blueprint for moving forward over the next twenty-five to fifty years. Among the many contributors are Deborah Berke, Andr s Duany, Steven Holl, L on Krier, Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, Aldo Rossi, and Robert A. M. Stern.

MEDIA REVIEWS
..".Beautifully written and illustrated...It's not a small volume at 600 pages, but Visions is seriously impressive as its subject. Lovers of architecture and town planning will be fascinated...Highly recommended." Switchboard from the Natural Resources Defense Council

"Visions of Seaside explores designs of the town that were never constructed and the lessons it offers as an urbanist design. The book offers stunning, unique photographs and insights into the Seaside community from its humble beginnings to its modern development today." 30A- Florida's Scenic Highway

"Thadani unveils with artistry the complete history of Seaside, from the plans when the roads wiggled, to the efficient street and lot plans, to the evolution and transformation of spaces as places, to futuristic views of an even more sustainable and venerable town...Visions of Seaside is five books in one...When I purchased Thadani's magnum opus, I began to marvel at the impressive composition of diagrams, sketches, plans and photographs, each of them a tribute to Thadani's respect for all who have contributed to the success of Seaside." Better! Cities & Towns

..".one of the most breathtaking books to come out this fall...You will not be disappointed with the images and scholarly text." Restless Urbanist

"The book provides an extensive history of the town as well as discussions about its ideals. Each house--and other buildings, including many that were merely planned, not built--is profiled in this Bible-size collection and the volume is packed with suggestions for alternative town layouts." Designers and Books

"In the massive book Thadani documents much more than firsthand observations of his stay; he thoroughly recounts the history and evolution of the pioneering community, highlights many of the place's distinctive buildings and presents a wealth of unbuilt proposals to learn from." houzz.com
