Overview: Mesmerizing from the first page to the last, Kristin Hannah’s Winter Garden is one woman’s sweeping, heartbreaking story of love, loss, and redemption.

It is a novel that will haunt the reader long after the last page is turned.

Necessities: .PDF reader, 67 MB
Overview: Clarence S. Stein (1882-1975) was an architect, housing visionary, regionalist, policymaker, and colleague of among the most influential public figures of the early to mid-twentieth century, together with Lewis Mumford and Benton MacKaye. Kristin E. Larsen’s biography of Stein comprehensively examines his constructed and unbuilt initiatives and his mental legacy as a proponent of the ‘backyard metropolis’ for a contemporary age. This examination of Stein’s life and legacy focuses on 4 essential themes: his collaborative ethic in envisioning coverage, design, and growth options; promotion and implementation of ‘funding housing;’ his revolutionary method to group design, as epitomized within the Radburn Concept; and his advocacy of communitarian regionalism. His cutting-edge initiatives equivalent to Sunnyside Gardens in New York Metropolis; Baldwin Hills Village in Los Angeles; and Radburn, New Jersey, his ‘city for the motor age,’ proceed to encourage group designers and planners in the US and all over the world.
