Description
 
The first part of the book is both an homage to the nature and appeal of the squares of Venice and an analysis of their physical qualities in urbanistic terms.

The Venetian settings were chosen for their freedom from auto traffic, streets, or peculiarities of topography. The narrative then takes those insights and applies them in a corresponding examination of a wide variety of modern-day urban spaces in America, to determine which are being emulated today and which less so.
