About this product
- DescriptionAfter the vast destruction wrought by Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans faces a rare chance to rebuild, with an unprecedented opportunity to plan what gets built. As the city's director of planning from 1992 until 2000, Kristina Ford is uniquely placed to use these opportunities as a springboard for an eye-opening discussion of the intransigent problems and promising possibilities facing city planners across the nation and beyond. In The Trouble with City Planning, Ford argues that almost part of our usual understanding of the phrase city planning is accurate: t our conception of the plan itself, r our sense of what city planners do or who plans are made for or how planners determine what citizens want. Most important, our conventional understanding does t tell us how a plan affects what gets built in any city in America. Ford advances several planning invations that, if adopted, could be crucial for restoring New Orleans, but also transformative wherever citizens are troubled by the results of their city's plan. This keenly intelligent book is destined to become a classic for planners and citizens alike.
