American Urban Architecture: Catalysts in the Design of Cities
by Wayne Attoe, Donn Logan
Publisher: University of California Press 1992
Number of pages: 208
Conceiving of urban design in terms of architectural actions and reactions, Attoe and Logan propose a theory of "catalytic architecture" better suited to specifically American circumstances than the largely European models developed in the last thirty years for the remaking of cities. After exploring instances of failed attempts to impose European visions on American cities, the authors examine urban design successes that illustrate the principles and goals of catalytic architecture.
