Rail and the City



Warren, Roxanne
MIT Press, 2014
SKU S00416

In Rail and the City, architect Roxanne Warren makes the case for compact urban development that is supported by rail transit. She believes the automobile to be a relic of the twentieth century, and envisions a release from the tyrannies of traffic congestion, petroleum dependence, and an oppressively paved environment. Warren considers issues of access to transit, citing examples from Europe, Japan, and North America, and pedestrian- and transit-oriented urban design. Rail transit, Warren argues, is the essential infrastructure for a fluidly functioning urban society.
