This book is a sequel to The City at Eye Level: Lessons for Street Plinths published in early 2012. The first book focused on plinths in the city: the ground floors that negotiate between the inside and the outside, between the public and the private. This book focuses on the human scale: the true city at eye level. Moving beyond the plinths, the authors include not only physical components like the façade, building, sidewalk, street, bikeways, trees—but also the emotional and social aspects. What makes a space a place to be and a place to linger? And more importantly, who? This updated and revised edition makes a better attempt at telling the whole story.
