Sixty-three neighborhood, community, and regional shopping centers are minutely described and illustrated in this book. Parking had never before been analyzed so completely; the authors called upon every expert in the field for their views. This book contains information on siting, pedestrian circulation, freight handling, reflections on glass, lighting, signs, and every other problem, major or minor, involved in the design and operation of a successful center. A must for architects, engineers, designers, and city planners. Quite forward-looking for a 1951 study!
