What is a Garden City? How do you become one? This book draws on the history of the garden city movement and the experiences of Letchworth - the first Garden City - and combines these with contemporary international experiences and good practices to propose a manifesto for future garden cities. It defines a Garden City as a place that brings together the best elements of town and country through the implementation of 12 core principles. Written by Philip Ross, former Mayor of Letchworth Garden City and Prof. Yves Cabannes, Chair of the Development Planning at DPU at University College London. Foreword by Rod Hackney, former President of the Royal Institute of British Architects. Postscript by John Emmeus Davis, former Dean, National Community Land Trust Academy, USA
