“When Paradise Planned arrived at my home—all 1,072 extra-thick high-gloss pages—my first instinct was to set the volume down on its own half-acre lot, give it a peaked roof, and simply move in. All this bulk has a larger purpose: to prove overwhelmingly that the topic is not marginal or slight—that you can't fathom the modern city without understanding the immemorial longing for a house in a bower, just outside the city walls. The authors deploy industrial quantities of homework and buckets of elegant prose—not to mention maps, drawings, then-and-now snapshots, close-up details, and aerial views—to rescue a ‘tragically interrupted, 150-year-old tradition’ from modern disrepute.” —Architectural Record 

Paradise Planned, a massive history of the garden suburb, comes out next month. It’s vintage Stern, contrarian and sweeping: At a time when it’s fashionable to give the suburbs up for dead, he puts out an exhaustive ode to the bucolic enclave. That has always been Stern’s strength. He’s so old-fashioned that he’s practically countercultural.” —New York magazine

“‘A 1,072-page behemoth, beautifully designed by Pentagram, that is a global Baedeker to the long and interesting history of the planned suburb. The book documents projects all over Europe and North America, and also ranges as far as Brazil, Israel, Japan, and Australia. There is no doubt that Paradise Planned will become the prime source on the subject. The book provides ample information about the backgrounds of scores of projects, many today forgotten, most rarely published. It shows how deeply the idea of the garden suburb was embedded in the public consciousness, and how it influenced not only garden city advocates, but architects and planners worldwide, including modernist pioneers Eliel Saarinen in Finland, Lewerentz in Sweden, Dudok in Holland, and Le Corbusier in France. . . . A gauntlet flung in the face of modernist urban theory. ‘Suburbs will not go away nor should they,’ Stern and company write. ‘Planned as part of the metropolitan city, the garden suburb is the best template yet devised to achieve a habitable earthly paradise.’” —Witold Rybczynski, Designers & Books

“From architect Robert A. M. Stern’s firm comes a comprehensive history of the garden suburb movement, which emerged in England during the 1830s. The volume also serves as a guide for current and future urban planning.” —Architectural Digest

“You realize skimming through that there's a reason why some of the highest priced real estate outside big cities is often in garden suburbs (Beverly Hills, Calif., Chestnut Hill, Pa., Highland Park, Il.); though as the authors take care to point out, they were also commonly built for working-class communities. But from the first full-page picture in the book, an inviting image of a Tudor home on a leafy, gently curving street next to a sidewalk and a streetlamp in Forest Hills Gardens, Queens to images of grand, leafy neighborhoods with majestic oaks and wide, green-space boulevards, it's further proof that we did something right before suburban sprawl ate everything up. Planners and developers should, and will, take note. Paradise Planned is an important study of an oft overlooked, important chapter in our residential and sociocultural history—and it is a model we should draw from when thinking about how our communities can better meet the needs of the changing American Dream. Besides, it's hard not to agree with Stern, who points out you do get your money's worth. 'Pound for pound, you cannot find a better book'” —Fortune

“The writers reveal to denigrators that there is a great divide between good suburban planning and the banal sprawl too often seen as its inevitable byproduct. There is an ever greater community of modern practitioners who will keep Paradise Planned in ready, well-thumbed proximity to their desks. There could be no better prop for prospective client meetings, especially among elected and appointed officials making land-use decisions at a time of shrinking available land and rising property values.” —The Architect’s Newspaper
“The writing is clear and fluent, free from pretension and packed with relevant information; and each entry includes a good bibliographical note listing the main sources. Given that more than 1000 projects are covered, this is no mean feat. The visual documentation is exceptional. Most projects get at least four images (and some many more), the majority in color, typically including the layout plan and/or aerial photo and a number of street views.” —RIBA Journal

“A comprehensive record of one of the Industrial Revolution’s offshoots: the garden city movement, which germinated in England and spread green suburbs across the States, the Continent and beyond. The movement’s principles are making a hybrid comeback.” —New York Spaces

5.0 von 5 Sternen The definitive work, grandly produced 24. Oktober 2014
Von Randall Arendt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Stern has produced another excellent volume, this one providing literally thousands of color images depicting the history of the garden suburb in Europe and Northamerica. The research is meticulous, the entries highly readable, and the production suburb. That this 1100-page tome could be produced for only $95 is itself very impressive. My only concern is its considerable weight -- it would have been easily handled as a two-volume set. I highly recommend this for all planners, particularly those whose professional training was not very strong in planning history and physical design. Also for architects and landscape architects.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Outstanding Volume of Urban Design Insights - A Mindful Feast !!! 25. Oktober 2014
Von Gary Roberts - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
WOW! What an incredible compendium is this! For anyone interested in urban design, this volume is pure Heaven! This substantial volume is testament to the research staff that Stern employed to compile all of this significant information. It's one of the best examples of a project almost without end. Undertaking a taxonomy of this nature requires patience and the ability to say stop. Obviously, as research continued to unfold "stop" was not in Stern's vocabulary and we, the readers, are better off for it. This is a must have read and source of data for architects, urban designers, town architects, and all the New Urbanists in the world. You'll feel that you went to dinner and wound up gorging yourself of the exhaustive feast that is represented here. All I can say is, "ENJOY!"

5.0 von 5 Sternen ) Would highly recommend to any history nerd 30. Juni 2015
Von J.Han - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I am clearly biased in my review, since I purchased this book bc my husband's thesis is quoted in it. Besides that, though, it is quite the impressive book. Very in-depth with lots of pictures. My husband, the history nerd, thinks it's so well done, and not just bc he's quoted in it. ;) Would highly recommend to any history nerd!
