Regulating Place: Standards and the Shaping of Urban America

By Eran Ben-Joseph; Terry S. Szold | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

The editors are grateful to Bish Sanyal, former head of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Department of Urban Studies and Planning (DUSP); Larry Vale, the current head of the department; and William Mitchell, former dean of MIT School of Architecture and Planning for providing the intellectual and financial support that enabled an MIT colloquium and consequently this book project to materialize.

Most of the chapters in this book originated as papers commissioned for this sponsored colloquium held in the fall of 2002. Although we were not able to include their papers in this anthology, we greatly value the colloquium presentations by Shlomo Angel, John de Monchaux, Dennis Frenchman, Ralph Gakenheimer, William Mitchell, Moshe Safdie, and Anne Whiston Spirn. We also appreciate the commentary on the colloquium presentations by Thomas Broadrick, Langley Keys, Karen Polenske, James Stockard, and William Wheaton.

We are particularly indebted to Sam Bass Warner for his keen comments and indispensable help in sorting through the various drafts, as well as to David McBride and Angela Chnapko of Routledge. We also wish to acknowledge the central role of the MIT students who participated in our “Regulating Place” seminar: Jane Healey, Josh Huntington, Elizabeth Leheny, Michael Marrella, Ariella Rosenberg, Sarah Roszler, Lillian Shuey, and Carolina Simon. Their passion and divergent opinions have fueled many of our seminar's discussions and have been instrumental in shaping the direction of this anthology. Finally, to our families, especially Jon Fain (who helped us prepare a coherent and engaging book proposal) and Holly and Eli Ben-Joseph, without your help and support this anthology would never have come to fruition.
