City Beautiful Movement by William H. Wilson

Book Awards

  • Winner of Society for American City and Regional Planning History Lewis Mumford Prize 1990.

Book Description

Critics of the turn-of-the-century's City Beautiful Movement denounced its projects-broad, tree-lined boulevards and monumental but low-lying civic buildings-as grandiose and unnecessary. In this masterful analysis, William H. Wilson sees the movement as its founders did: as an exercise in participatory politics aimed at changing the way citizens thought about cities.
