Wade Graham
Cities tend to look alike to us – from the steel, glass, and concrete towers at their core to civic centers, shopping malls, and freeways feeding into the suburbs. But Wade Graham wants us to see more, to appreciate the expressions of ideas in urban design and what the designers were saying about how we should live, work, purchase, and play.
 
In a discussion of his book, Pepperdine University’s Wade Graham identifies seven architectural concepts that he says have shaped urban planning and design in the past century and a half. And he examines the men and women responsible for them.
