Planning and Urban Design Standards
Walk into any architect's office, and you'll probably find a copy of Architectural Graphic Standards in the library—or, more likely, open on a desk. For decades, architects have considered this reference from publisher John Wiley & Sons essential. Now, planners and urban designers have their own version of this classic encyclopedia.
John Wiley & Sons teamed up with the American Planning Association to create Planning and Urban Design Standards, a comprehensive reference on everything from impact assessment to visualization. APA worked with nearly 200 planners and urban designers to compile best practices and rules of thumb for every aspect of city building. The result is a practical sourcebook—with more than 800 graphics and illustrations—that belongs on every planner’s and urban designer’s desk.
