Reviews
"Viewing the west through Ruscha's eyes offers planners to think about the opposite of roadside America: the vibrancy of center cities so often dismissed as "crowds;" the pedestrian environments so ripe for redesign; the public spaces that we forgot to build as we expanded; and, most of all, the zoning laws, street patterns, and real estate typologies that pretend as if we can expand infinitely, all the way to that long horizon."--California Planning and Development Report
