    Harvard Design Magazine: Spring/Summer 2005 Edition

    The current spring/summer edition of Harvard Design Magazine has a special issue on urban planning, Urban Planning Now: What Works? What Doesn't?. Does anyone here subscribe to this periodical? I saw it on the bookshelf last week, and I contemplated buying it, but held off until I got more opinions. It looks interesting and I may subsribe to HDM so I can have this issue.

    Articles in this issue include:

    The Return of Urban Renewal Dan Doctoroff's Grand Plans for New York City, by Susan Fainstein

    Plans for Manhattan's Far West Side A Portent of New Urban Redevelopment?, by Robert Yaro

    We get a copy in our student mailboxes. I remember reading subscription info inside; for some reason $18 a copy sticks in my head but that could be wrong. That issue was awesome but you have to be careful; I think that was the most planning heavy one you will see all year and you better like "architecture" if you get a subscription.
