Lynch, K. (1960) The image of the city. Cambridge, Massachusetts, and London: The M.I.T. Press.

To answer these questions, Mr. Lynch, supported by studies of Los Angeles, Boston, and Jersey City, formu- lates a new criterion — imageability — and shows its potential value as a guide for the building and rebuilding of cities.”  Read and download the full book
