Advancing the Observations of Jane Jacobs
“Design is people,” Jane Jacobs once said. In the case of What We See, design is analyzed by more than thirty people that have distinguished themselves in various areas of planning or related fields. Using their own unique professional and personal knowledge, noteworthy contributors such as Jan Gehl and Arlene Goldbard present fresh takes on all things urban, from environmental preservation to children in the city, making the point that what has been typecast as ‘Jacobsian’ thought can never be frozen into a certain ideology.
