Paola Viganò on Urbanism and Society (Fisher Fine Arts Library)

What are the principles and the aesthetics guiding the design of our cities today? What are the ideals behind urbanists’ responses to pressing questions on the responsible use of resources, respect for the environment and planning collective living and multi-culturalism?
