Paradise Planned: The Garden Suburb and the Modern City

Be the first to review this product

With scholarly depth and extraordinary encyclopaedic range, Robert AM Stern and his co-authors David Fishman and Jacob Tilove have surveyed this now vast terrain in the aptly entitled Paradise Planned. Over twenty years in preparation, and weighing in at 1,072 pages, with thousands of beautifully reproduced illustrations, most in colour, this work examines the emergence of the planned garden suburb, from its origins in the English Classical-Picturesque developments of the late 18th century, its adoption in the paternalist industrial garden villages of Europe and America, through its iterations in the various garden city movements, to its more recent version in the New Urbanist traditionalist town plans of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Its geographical scope is equally encyclopaedic covering not only every type of garden suburb planned and built in the US and Europe, but also its ‘globalisation’, spreading in the first forty years of the 20th century to Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, India, Zambia, South Africa, Egypt, Palestine, Greece, Russia, China, Vietnam and Japan in all its colonial and post-colonial variants.
