Talks about re-building cities and towns based on ecological principles for the long term sustainability, cultural vitality and health of the Earth's biosphere. This book describes the place of the city in evolution, nature and history. It focuses on the question of accessibility and transportation, and outlines design principles for the ecocity.

Throughout, this new edition is generously illustrated with the author's own inspired visions of what such rebuilt cities might actually look like.
