Design of Cities , first published in , is an illustrated account of the development of urban form, written by Edmund Bacon — , who was the Executive Director of the Philadelphia City Planning Commission from to The work looks at the many aspects that influence city design, including spatial form, interactions between humans, nature and the built environment, perception of favorable environments, color, and perspective. Bacon also explores the growth of cities from early Greek and Roman times to Philadelphia 's design in the s. It is considered a seminal text on urban planning. Bacon identifies eight elements of 'Involvement' in Architecture and Urban Design. Describing these elements as functions of design, he argues the urban designer should be aware of these elements and use them as tools when developing a 'design idea' of what the city or place ought to look like. Bacon points to akroterion of Greek temples as an excellent example of how buildings and built form meet the sky.

I don't give it 5 stars because the material is dated and would not include discussions of the flow of stocks energy, products, raw materials, digital information, people and discussions of collaborative design with the people who live and work in the city, those who are vital to its lasting success.

Jan 16, Lewis M rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is the book that made me become or want to become an urban planner. I have read and researched through my well worn volume many times and its lessons are as valuable today as they were when I first opened the book in the 's.
Along with Jane Jacobs death and life of great American cities and Paolo Saleri's Acosanti, I was armed with the literature required to inspire a good planner, or at least so I thought. I have learned much in the intervening years, but from time to time wander back This is the book that made me become or want to become an urban planner. I have learned much in the intervening years, but from time to time wander back to the lessons in Bacon's book.
