“This book could change the way people see the streets in their towns and cities. And it could help those towns and cities make streets for people, rather than their cars.”

—Mayor Joe Riley, Charleston, South Carolina

“The best streets in the world’s villages, towns, and cities—whether modest or grand—continually remind one that simplicity is part of the recipe for success in this art. The advice of Victor Dover and John Massengale, their historic examples and their own designs, reflect that simplicity.”

—From the Foreword by HRH The Prince of Wales

“This fine book by Massengale and Dover is a treasure map to the long-buried trove of knowledge, skill, and principle needed to build better places for the human project to dwell in.”

—From the Afterword by James Howard Kunstler

Victor Dover and John Massengale know how to fix America’s neighborhoods, cities, and towns: make them walkable again. That begins with great streets where people want to be, where they feel comfortable, safe, and charmed by their surroundings. Street Design looks at hundreds of streets old and new, shows us what works and what doesn’t, and reveals the secrets behind designing beautiful streets and walkable places.

This useful and transformative guide

Shows examples of over 150 excellent streets and explains why they are successful and how they were designed and created

Reveals crucial elements that many modern street designs lack

Offers step-by-step instruction on how to design new streets and improve existing ones to create more walkable cities and towns

Highlights common street-design challenges and ways they can be addressed through placemaking

Features more than 500 color and black-and-white photos

Includes contributions from twenty of the leading design experts in the field, including Andrés Duany, Lèon Krier, and the former mayor of Milwaukee

Street Design is the ideal handbook for urban designers, civic leaders, architects, city planners, engineers, and landscape architects, and essential reading for any person who wants to make their community walkable and create memorable streets that are not mere routes to someplace else, but the great places to which other routes lead.
