I knew I needed to read this from front to back but that didn t make it any easier to get through Well for one of the first times not only did I feel stupid but I ated reading this Maybe that makes me a bad architecture student I think in general I m much better at reading fiction than non fiction but in this case the subject matter was pretty uninteresting mostly because I think I actually understood about 4% of the book It was a little sad because the book Cinque indagini romane per Rocco Schiavone (Il vicequestore Rocco Schiavone Vol. 6) has some great pictures of neat places with cool ideas that light up even when just placed side by side Every once in a while something would spark my interestunderstanding the foxes versusedgehogs the discussion of main street posing Ithaca against Disney etc My guess is that to get out of this one you would need a lot of time to look up each foreign concept or a pretty good backgr Wow I didn t think collages were that complicated to explain A fascinating read by a brilliant mind that doesn t dumb down Professor Astro Cat's Human Body Odyssey his thoughts at all Really lucky I ve been re reading philosophy andave a good vocabulary and a decent Squash Basics - How To Play Squash handle on artarchitecturearchitects Picked this book up when I was done a drafting program because I felt like Iad no idea what architecture was This didn t What Is a Googly?: The Mysteries of Cricket Explained help much but was a challenging read for the sake of itA review in the style of Colin RoweThe dude says which to carry onis sentences and paragraphs which means I started to play a game where I spot the word which which took me out of Of Magic and Mating New Canton Republic his arguments some of the time which meant iad to go back and re read whole pages which gave this tome the illusion of a literal literary witch unt which to "my mind made is arguments seem thin and rambling which meant I ad to go "mind made is arguments seem thin and rambling which meant I ad to go and re read for the 3rd time which made reading this book a slow processNot sure who the intended audience for this book is Graduate students in Urban Planning Kids

This book is a critical reappraisal of contemporary theories of urban planning and design and of the role of. Al design and total planning The middle three sections each
an idea compromise in order to combat the utopian visions discussed in the first section These compromises include looking both forward and backward balance between the planned and the unplanned and compromise between scientific reasoning and bricoleur architecture In the last section the authors bring together all of these compromises in the proposal of a city of collage An additional sixth section an Excurses comprised of examples of what pieces of a collage city might look "Like Neatly Ties Off "neatly ties off bookOverall Collage City is an influential book in the field of urban planning and architecture Rowe and Koetter s rejection of popular modern utopian visions steered urban planning in a new direction The proposals in Collage City are thoughtfully put forward and well backed up with examples Comparisons to other author s ideas and the thoughtful presentation of images further support the authors argument However at times the authors argument can be ard to follow due to long paragraph like sentences and foreign words and concepts If one can maneuver the complexity of Rowe and Koetter s writing they will find in Collage City a well supported argument against monocular modernist visions in favour of a flexible contextualized city of collage This is probably the most worthwhile book I ve ever read when it comes to understanding the current post modern debate surrounding cities Although it was written nearly 50 years ago it is no less valid today For anyone even vaguely interested in urban design planning and especially those involved in the CNU or UVF this book is a must for clarification of where current debate is stemming from And perhaps the collage city is still a valid idea although we must do something about that global village idiot Utopia as metaphos and Collage City as prescription these opposites involving the guarantees of both law and freedom should surely constitute the dialectic of the future rather than any total surrender either to scientific certainties or the simple vagaries of the ad oc The disintegration of modern architecture seems to call for such a strategy an enlightened pluralism seems to invite and possibly even common sense concurs You ave to keep looking up in a dictionary and keeping research otherwise it will be mass. And total design propose instead a collage city which can accommodate a whole range of utopias in miniature. Es Ecstacity Collision City Event "City
