Whittemore co-authors book on American urban form

Andrew Whittemore, Ph.D., assistant professor of City and Regional Planning, teamed up with Sam Bass Warner, MIT visiting professor and urban historian, to write American Urban Form – A Representative History. The book maps the evolution of the American urban form by offering an illustrated history of the “the City,” a hypothetical city that exemplifies the American city’s transformation throughout history. In addition to co-writing, Whittemore provided all the book’s illustrations as well. The book will be released by The MIT Press next month. You can read more about it here.
