The Social Life of Small Urban Spaces
In 1980, William H. Whyte published the findings from his revolutionary Street Life Project in 'The Social Life of Small Urban Spaces'. Both the book and the accompanying film were instantly labeled classics, and launched a mini-revolution in the planning and study of public spaces. They have since become standard texts, and appear on syllabi and reading lists in urban planning, sociology, environmental design, and architecture departments around the world.
