Rebuilding the American City highlights 15 urban design and planning projects in the United States that have been catalysts for their downtowns and were implemented during the tumultuous start of the 21st century—a period marked by renewed interest in cities but also by ongoing social, economic and environmental challenges. The book presents five paradigms for redevelopment and a range of perspectives on the complexities, strategies, successes and challenges inherent to rebuilding American cities today. Rebuilding the American City is essential reading for practitioners and students in urban design, planning and public policy looking for diverse models of urban transformation to create resilient urban cores. Click on the cities featured in the book to read a summary of each case. Here you will also find links to the many key agencies and firms involved in each of the projects profiled in the book.
