“Although the live-work concept is now accepted among progressive urban design and planning professionals, the specifics that define the term, and its application, remain sketchy. This encyclopedic work is sure to change that, providing the critical information that is needed by architects, planners and citizens.”

-Peter Katz, Author, The New Urbanism, and PlanningDirector, Arlington County, Virginia
