APOLOGY, please note:

This blog is still under construction. We do not wish to publish it to search engines yet until we post a significant amount of information. Those who have just visited this blog by clicking links from other "architectural series" blogs or just surfed from Blogger itself, we apologize greatly and request for patience. We hope in due time all the blogs of architectural series will be helpful to all, especially for the architects.

Until then, please visit "architectural monographs" and "film and architecture" a subsection of "Architectural videos" which are relatively rich in content.

Review
"Burton and Mitchell have produced a well-researched and easy-to-read book, with the text amply supported by photographs and illustrations. Their conclusions challenge the idea that improving the planning and design of streets and outdoor spaces so that everyone can feel safe is difficult and unnecessary."
Building Engineer, August 2006

"There are some apparently modest books on modest topics that bring within them a profound message beyond their weight. This is such a book."
Urban Design, Winter 2007

"This is an excellent book which places the
importance of including the needs of older people firmly on the urban design agenda."
Urban Policy and Research, 25:2, 2007
