The Journal of Architectural Education recently published a review of Toward an Urban Ecology. The review introduces the book by what we here at SCAPE call it: a manufestograph (a playful combination of the words manual, manifesto and monograph). It then discusses the book in terms of each of these three types of text, highlighting how the book’s departure from texts within the discipline is reflective of SCAPE’s model. The author of the review, Julia Czerniak, declares that “Through the innovative outreach strategies and how-to aspirations it articulates (manual), the activist stance it advances (manifesto), and the design work and writing it presents (monograph), SCAPE’s Manufestograph begins to address how we as a discipline can actually effect change.”
Toward an Urban Ecology recently was awarded an ASLA Honors Award in the Communications category. You can purchase the book here.
