Building Blocks

Steve Cohlmeyer has written a book length manuscript about the underlying structure of traditional cities. The work focuses on the inherent territorial clarity of the historic way of building, and the social and economic advantages that grow from this territorial clarity.

 

The second part of the manuscript explores how the traditional structure was compromised by early 20th century city-building, and on how we might be able – at a topological level – to heal the effects of this compromise.

 

Readers are welcome to visit the Cohlmeyer Architecture Limited website cohlarch.ca to read or download the manuscript.
