No one has studied the European square more thoughtfully and thoroughly than Suzanne and Henry Lennard. This work will be of invaluable benefit to every city and to places yet to be designed and developed.

Joseph P. Riley Jr. Mayor, City of Charleston


This book will be most useful, in the university schools of town planning and architecture, in the offices of architects and town planners, and also in the houses of people who appreciate the creations of human skill and social wisdom. Everybody will appreciate and learn from the European squares clearly explained, and gracefully presented and illustrated.

Professor Edoardo Salzano
Former Deputy Mayor, City of Venice


...a liberal and joyful feast of images and ideas, which leaves the reader in no doubt that 'Genius' is a word aptly applied to that elusive phenomenon, the European Square.

Professor Peter Webber
Urban Design International


... an optimistic how-to book with lots of ideas for planners looking for specifics on how to urbanize new spaces or reurbanize old ones.

Harold Henderson
