128 pp. Subtitled "City Building According to its Artistic Fundamentals." Translated from the German by Charles T. Stewart. Originally published in Vienna in 1889; new forward by Eliel Saarinen, also introduction by Ralph Walker and a supplementary chapter by Arthur C. Holden detailing Sitte's influence in NY and DC.

"This book will be refreshing indeed to those who feel--and who does not?--that our great cities are inexcusably overcrowded with Buildings, and poorly organized for living and working. Sitte devotes particular attention to the location and planning of public squares, plazas, courts, monuments, and recreation areas."
