9781118066706: Street Design: The Secret to Great Cities and Towns

"The best streets in the world's villages, towns, and cities—whether modest or grand—continually remind one that simplicity is part of the recipe for success in this art. The advice of Victor Dover and John Massengale, their historic examples and their own designs, reflect that simplicity."
—From the Foreword by HRH The Prince of Wales

“Street Design is a lucid, practical and altogether indispensable guide for envisioning and creating vibrant 21st century towns and cities. It should be required reading for every local political leader, planner, architect, real estate developer and engaged urban citizen in America."
—Kurt Andersen, host of Studio 360 and author of True Believers  

"We are going to start walking around the places we live again, and as that occurs and becomes normal, we will rapidly redevelop a demand for higher quality in building at the human scale."
—From the Afterword by James Howard Kunstler

“Your charrette traveling library must include the important Street Design book by Victor Dover and John Massengale.”—Bill Lennertz, Executive Director,  National Charrette Institute

“What an amazing resource!  For those who wish that my book, Walkable City, had pictures, this is the book for you.  If either your work or your play includes the making of places, you will find Street Design to be an invaluable tool.” Jeff Speck, AICP, CNU-A, LEED-AP, Hon. ASLA

Written by two accomplished architects and urban designers, this user-friendly street design manual shows both how to design new streets and enhance existing ones. It offers step-by-step instruction and shares examples of excellent streets, examining the elements that make them successful as well as how they were designed and created. Topics also include strategies for shaping space in the public right-of-way through correct building height to street width ratios, terminated vistas, landscaping, and street geometry. This book is a valuable resource for urban designers, planners, architects, and engineers.

With guest essays from: Kaid Benfield, David Brussat, Javier Cenicacelaya, Hank Dittmar, Andres Duany, Douglas Duany, Emily Glavey, Chip Kaufman, Ethan Kent, Marieanne Khoury-Vogt, Léon Krier, Gianni Longo, Thomas Low, Laura Lyon, Chuck Marohn, Paul Murrain, John Norquist, Stefanos Polyzoides, Gabriele Tagliaventi and Erik Vogt.

From the Back Cover:

"This book could change the way people see the streets in their towns and cities. And it could help those towns and cities make streets for people, rather than their cars."
Mayor Joe Riley, Charleston, South Carolina

"This fine book by Massengale and Dover is a treasure map to the long-buried trove of knowledge, skill, and principle needed to build better places for the human project to dwell in."
—From the Afterword by James Howard Kunstler

Victor Dover and John Massengale know how to fix America's neighborhoods, cities, and towns: make them walkable again. That begins with great streets where people want to be, where they feel comfortable, safe, and charmed by their surroundings. Street Design looks at hundreds of streets old and new, shows us what works and what doesn't, and reveals the secrets behind designing beautiful streets and walkable places.

This useful and transformative guide:

  • Shows examples of over 150 excellent streets and explains why they are successful and how they were designed and created
  • Reveals crucial elements that many modern street designs lack
  • Offers step-by-step instruction on how to design new streets and improve existing ones to create more walkable cities and towns
  • Highlights common street-design challenges and ways they can be addressed through placemaking
  • Features more than 500 color and black-and-white photos
  • Includes contributions from twenty of the leading design experts in the field, including Andrés Duany, Lèon Krier, and the former mayor of Milwaukee

Street Design is the ideal handbook for urban designers, civic leaders, architects, city planners, engineers, and landscape architects, and essential reading for any person who wants to make their community walkable and create memorable streets that are not mere routes to someplace else, but the great places to which other routes lead.

About the Author:

Victor Dover, FAICP, is cofounder of Dover, Kohl & Partners Town Planning based in Coral Gables, Florida, a design practice focused on restoring healthy neighborhoods as the basis for sound communities and regions. He is former national chair of the Congress for New Urbanism (CNU) and lead designer of more than 150 neighborhoods, urban revitalization programs, and regional plans across the United States and abroad.

John Montague Massengale, AIA, is an architect and urban designer in New York City. He is a board member of the CNU, which has been called "the most important phenomenon to emerge in American architecture in the post–Cold War era" and a former Director of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art. With Robert A. M. Stern, he was coauthor of New York 1900: Metropolitan Architecture and Urbanism 1890–1915 and The Anglo-American Suburb.
