The Center for Architecture

John Massengale, AIA, will present Street Design: The Secret to Great Cities and Towns, published by John Wiley & Sons.

Massengale and Dover know how to fix America's neighborhoods, cities, and towns: make them walkable again. That begins with great streets where people want to be, streets that are comfortable, safe, and interesting. In Street Design, two accomplished architects and urban designers share insights on how good street design can increase happiness, unlock economic value, improve our health, and lower our carbon footprint.

Street Design is the essential handbook for urban designers, civic leaders, architects, city planners, engineers, developers, landscape architects, and community activists: it is ideal reading for any person who wants to make their comunity walkable and create memorable streets that are not just routes to somplace else, but great places that are destinations in themselves.

John Montague Massengale, AIA, is an architect and urban designer in New York City. He is a board member of the Congress for New Urbanism (CNU), which The New York Times called "the most important phenomenon to emerge in American architecture in the post-Cold War era" and a formr Director of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art. With Robert A.M. Stern, he was coauthor of New York 1900: Metropolitan Architecture and Urbanism 1890-1915 and The Anglo-American Suburb.
