This manual documents the revival of the traditional architectural pattern book as a means of implementing urban design.

From the firm that produced The Urban Design Handbook comes a practical guide to developing and using pattern books-a tradition stretching back to Vitruvius and Palladio, and the source of many beautiful houses-to design neighborhoods today. It describes techniques and working methods for contemporary development and construction processes.


“The beauty of the system is that it is based on existing excellence not style, and typological selection is helped by a broad consensus on what is proven to work.” — Ben Bolgar, RIBA Journal
