The End of the Street: Sustainable Growth Within Natural Limits


Manufacturer: Black Rose Books

Product Information

"Influenced by his personal correspondence with Lewis Mumford (widely regarded as one of the foremost urban critics of the century), David Dobereiner's work advances a concept of regional development that balances the needs of the social world with those of the natural ecosystem.

Knowing that global land uses require radical re-thinking, Dobereiner first provides an overview of the important issues in sustainable urban design. His concept of sustainable development includes not only the physical elements of a community, but also the economic and social impacts of development, and the long-term conservation of natural resources.

Taking it one step further, he looks at how development ideals can be translated into practical techniques - site planning, designing, and building 'green' projects - that conserve natural resources, take advantage of existing urban structures, and improve the economic and social dimensions of a community, while considering the financial realities that must be faced. Most of what needs to be done, he believes, is known and is technically feasible."

Published by Black Rose Books, author David Dobereiner. 2006.
