Textbooks

  1. Olfactory Architectures

    Smell is a sense most architects have engaged with at some point in their work: whether designing a house, a residential care home or the industrial kitchen for a commercial restaurant, the ventilation of rooms and removal of strong and potentially unpleasant odours is a well-rehearsed practice. Yet in addition to the annoying smells, olfaction also offers many opportunities that have traditionally been overlooked, and it’s not just in architecture but right across the built environment professions.

  1. New Ideals in the Planning of Cities, Towns and Villages

    Bruce Stephenson has worked as a professor, public planner and a consultant. He is a leading expert on John Nolen, the visionary founding father of American city planning. Stephenson’s definitive biography, John Nolen, Landscape Architect and City Planner, illuminates the art Nolen practiced and the legacy he left. He also wrote the Introduction to a re-issued edition of Nolen’s most far-reaching book, New Ideals in the Planning of Villages, Towns, and Cities. At Rollins College, Stephenson and his students offer plans to solve the problems suburban sprawl has created in Orlando, Florida. Presently he is building on his study of Lewis Mumford’s vision for Portland, Oregon. He plans to document how Portland became a Mecca of urban sustainability, and a model for Orlando.
