Patrick Condon has drawn on decades of hands-on urban experience to create a handbook that should be on the desk of every municipal leader.Doug Saunders, columnist at the Globe and Mail, author of "Arrival Cities" "This book's 'simple design rules for complex times' offer a much needed alternative to a profession obsessed with techno-green fixes and utopian whimsy. Condon translates 'systems thinking' into a practical urban design idea, that has the ability to scale up. He shows how changes brought by immigration, aging, and lack of affordability are not just footnotes to a design ideology, but essential design determinants. This concise, hopeful guide is an inspired fusion of big-picture thinking and practical design.Emily Talen, Professor of Urbanism, University of Chicago, author of "Neighborhood" "Hooray for Patrick Condon! In this eminently lucid and cogent book, he charts a sensible path through the daunting challenges that are now emerging for city-makers of all kinds. His recommendations in response are intelligent and remarkably practical. While his picture of the urban future is not pollyanna, neither is it despairing. We had better get with this program; as Condon points out, the next four decades will be pivotal for cities, and for us all.Michael Mehaffy, Senior Researcher, Ax:son Johnson Foundation, author of "Cities Alive"
