Thirty years after its publication, The Death and Life of Great American Cities was described by The New York Times as "perhaps the most influential single work in the history of town planning....[It] can also be seen in a much larger context. It is first of all a work of literature; the descriptions of street life as a kind of ballet and the bitingly satiric account of traditional planning theory can still be read for pleasure even by those who long ago absorbed and appropriated the book's arguments." Jane Jacobs, an editor and writer on architecture in New York City in the early sixties, argued that urban diversity and vitality were being destroyed by powerful architects and city planners. Rigorous, sane, and delightfully epigrammatic, Jacobs's small masterpiece is a blueprint for the humanistic management of cities. It is sensible, knowledgeable, readable, indispensable. The author has written a new foreword for this Modern Library edition.

In something as complex as the built environment, how does one design and engineer the right outcome? Is there a way to account for all the factors impinging on the final product and guide the creative process to where it needs to go? Anton Germishuizen and J. Rossi would say yes ? the two are part of a team at Burt Hill Architects responsible for developing and applying ten critical, interconnected drivers, or metrics, that turn the often subjective architecture and engineering process into an analytical, measurable one, without making design prescriptive. In 10 Metrics, using projects on which Burt Hill's metrics approach has been successfully implemented, readers learn how this evidence-based system came about and how it's being used to ensure responsive design and quantifiable value, all while managing risk.
