 Particularly valuable are descriptions of how the makers of the built environment--architects, planners, et al.--negotiated with the existing environment and how their constructions express that negotiation and the challenges imposed by geographical context. . . . The book’s uniqueness lies in the inclusion of diverse architectural and urban examples. -- Choice

 Thoughtfully demonstrates various factors in city space creation, recognizing that architecture is syncretic, taking on the nuances of contemporary thought, economics, and consumption, and broader social and environmental shifts. -- Journal of Latin American Geography
