A Bunch of Pretty Things I Did Not Buy
"A significant new book…has awesome implications for the future of real-estate development, land-use planning, architecture and health…Tony Hiss illuminates the real nitty-gritty meaning of the dawning environmental era." — Boston Globe
Why do some places — the concourse of Grand Central Terminal or a small farm or even the corner of a skyscraper — affect us so mysteriously and yet so forcefully? What tiny changes in our everyday environments can radically alter the quality of our daily lives? The Experience of Place offers an innovative and delightfully readable proposal for new ways of planning, building, and managing our most immediate and overlooked surroundings.
"Tony Hiss…describes subtle but practical ways to improve mediocre places and transform even some unpleasant ones. Hiss’s book itself is like a splendid place-experience: it draws one in, surprises and charms, and enhances the landscapes of the mind." — Jane Jacobs
"To read [The Experience of Place]…is to come away convinced not only that things can be put right, but that the job is well underway."
