This week's #ForewordFriday excerpt comes from Reshaping Metropolitan America, by Arthur C. Nelson. What do you think cities will look like in ten years? What about in fifteen years? Nelson asserts that most of the buildings that will be standing then don't even exist yet. In Reshaping Metropolitan America, Nelson provides statistics about key factors that are shaping the built environment in the hope that designers will take advantage of the opportunity to make urban areas more sustainable and livable for future generations. Enjoy!
