A blueprint for designing 21st century streets, the Guide unveils the toolbox and the tactics cities use to make streets safer, more livable, and more economically vibrant. The Guide outlines both a clear vision for complete streets and a basic road map for how to bring them to fruition.
What Clients Want, Vol. 2 is the second in the popular IIDA book series, What Clients Want. The second volume departs from the first by focusing solely on hotel design. Sixteen projects were chosen from around the world, and each project features commentary from both the client and the designer. Included are client responses from CEOs, hoteliers, developers, and operators of five-star and boutique properties including Hilton Worldwide, Firmdale Group, Starwood Capital, Langham, Ritz-Carlton Reserve, and the Fasano brand, to name a few.
The goal of the Campaign for Bioethics and The Hastings Center is to insure that we think clearly about life and our human future so that we can act responsibly, fairly, and humanely.
A collection of essential conversations between designers and their clients about how significant projects were conceived, how they have defined culture, demonstrated value and shifted business models.

The NACTO Urban Bikeway Design Guide, Second Edition, is based on the experience of the best cycling cities in the world. Completely re-designed with an accessible, four-color layout, this second edition continues to build upon the fast-changing state of the practice at the local level. The designs in this book were developed by cities for cities, since unique urban streets require innovative solutions.
To create the Guide, the authors conducted an extensive worldwide literature search from design guidelines and real-life experience. They worked closely with a panel of urban bikeway planning professionals from NACTO member cities and from numerous other cities worldwide, as well as traffic engineers, planners, and academics with deep experience in urban bikeway applications.
