The Monocle Guide to Building Better Cities



Ever since its launch in 2007, Monocle has been passionate about improving our cities. In this important new book Monocle’s editors unpack what makes a great city and how to fix one that’s flagging. How do you fashion your own High Line, create the most covetable housing, or transform a grimy river into a glistening asset? Beautifully shot and illustrated, this is a book that takes the urbanism debate away from city hall and explains what’s needed in ways that will inspire us all.
