  • Arbitrary Lines: How Zoning Broke the American City and How to Fix It

    BasicBinding: Paperback

    Author: Gray, M Nolan

    Publisher: Island Press

    Date Published: 06-2022

    ISBN: 1642832545 | EAN: 9781642832549

    BasicBinding: Paperback

    Features: Bibliography, Illustrated, Index, Maps, Price on Product | Pages: 256

    Annotation: It's time for America to move beyond zoning, argues city planner M. Nolan Gray in Arbitrary Lines: How Zoning Broke the American City and How to Fix It. With lively explanations, Gray shows why zoning abolition is a necessary--if not sufficient--condition for building more affordable, vibrant, equitable, and sustainable cities.

    Gray lays the groundwork for this ambitious cause by clearing up common misconceptions about how American cities regulate growth and examining four contemporary critiques of zoning (its role in increasing housing costs, restricting growth in our most productive cities, institutionalizing racial and economic segregation, and mandating sprawl). He sets out some of the efforts currently underway to reform zoning and charts how land-use regulation might work in the post-zoning American city.

    Arbitrary Lines is an invitation to rethink the rules that will continue to shape American life--where we may live or work, who we may encounter, how we may travel. If the task seems daunting, the good news is that we have nowhere to go but up

  • Googie Modern: Architectural Drawings of Armet Davis Newlove

    BasicBinding: Hardcover

    Publisher: Angel City Press

    Date Published: 03-2022

    ISBN: 1626401098 | EAN: 9781626401099

    BasicBinding: Hardcover

    Pages: 208

    Annotation: In Googie Modern: Architectural Drawings of Armet Davis Newlove, author Michael Murphy takes readers inside the private archives of the forward-thinking trio dubbed the fathers of Googie." Inspiring not just artists and filmmakers but the public at large, their futuristic coffee shops and restaurants made dining out a space-age experience, just as man was ready to walk on the moon. Armet Davis Newlove's architecture captured the optimistic and forward-thinking mood in post-war America and set the bar for what would become Mid-Century Modern style. The firm's high-concept designs shaped Southern California and then took off across the American landscape, giving the US innovative, practical, and gorgeous monuments of everyday life. Each remarkable rendering demonstrates the passion and precision that went into every Armet Davis Newlove creation. Googie Modern is itself a monument to the excitement and optimism that once lined the streets of mid-century America.

    Annotation: For several years, photographer Maura McEvoy and art director Basha Burwell travelled the length and breadth of Maine in search of houses that capture the state's singular character. These are not designer houses; they are homes created by the people who live in them, from artists to writers to fishermen, distinctive for their ingenuity, originality, and fierce individuality. Many are unchanged, inhabited by generations of the same family; some are ingenious conversions. These are homes that have a kind of visual wealth that money can't buy, homes that define the very spirit of Maine.
