The Planning Game is a fabulous new book from Alexander GarvinIf you are completely new to the idea of city planning it will in an enjoyable and totally understandable way introduce you to everything you need to know to gain and understanding of how the planning of cities works If you are a professional city planner it will excitingly let you in on what you really should know about the process that most academic programs in city planning never teach and most planners get wrong And no matter how well versed you are in this most complex and important process it will provide fascinating and unexpected new insights into specific truths of what happened in some of the cities under discussion There are parts of this book that will provide profound new insights to anyone who reads itPlanning for Alex Garvin is all about change Right from the opening paragraph of The Planning Game he lays it outSomebody is always trying to change things Every day city and state agencies chambers of commerce private developers and local citizens propose ideas to improve our cities and suburbs Not all of these ideas will result in change it is the process we know as planning that determines to a large extent which projects succeed and which ones fail to change our communities Planning brings together the forces of government business finance politics and public opinion and all the individuals who represent them in order to produce change The Planning Game p 9In his almost a half century of practicing and teaching Garvin has become one of the most respected advocates in the world for what he termsthe public realm approach to planning an approach that emphasizes the importance of public investments in determining the future of what we own and control our streets suares parks infrastructure and public buildings It is the fundamental element in any community the framework around which everything else grows Cities that adopt the public realm approach to planning make it easier and cheaper to do business make their citizensand improve the uality of life of their residents By combing public investments into a coherent agenda they provide the leverage for capturing and guiding private investment to operate in the public interest while in the process improving whole neighborhoods districts cities and even regionsAn agenda of this sort is not a wish list of things it might be nice to have setting aside considerations of priorities or feasibility It consists of actions that can and will be taken otherwise there will be no change This book argues that the only planning that matters is planning that is entirely implementation oriented ibid pp 13f emphasis addedGarvin describes who the players in the planning game are and the respective roles they play the public community activists visionaries eg Olmsted Ebenezer Howard Le Coubusier reformer critics eg Jacob Riis Lewis Mumford Jane Jacobs government agencies and public officials especially mayors lending institutions and private developers and public entrepreneurs He also explicates the rules of the game which actually determine who wins and who loses in the planning game the first set are economic rules the necessity of focusing on present and future market demand the maximizing of net operating income the calibration of risk and reward at every stage of a project s development and the advisability of borrowing as much as possible to cover the capital expenditures as opposed to the operating expenses the second set are political rules ie the necessity of obtaining and maintaining the approval from the right mix of players starting with one s base active support from the stakeholders reducing negative perceptions and diminishing resistance from opponents cultivating public support and securing the needed certifications In all of this Garvin gives lively illustrative examples from actual city projectsThe heart of this marvelous book however is Garvin s brilliant and extensive exploration of four cities that were successfully changed by excellent public realm planning and four great planners who each had massive positive effects on the changes that took place in his city Georges Eug ne Haussmannn in mid 19th century Paris Daniel Burnham in early 20th century Chicago Robert Moses in New York between 1920 and 1960 and Edmund Bacon in Philadelphia in the latter half of the 20th centuryWe all know about the Grands Boulevards Houssmann built and the drinking water and sewage systems he created and those with historic knowledge know about his relationship to Napol on III but do you know about his clever programs for financing his plans Everyone knows about Burnham s famous 1909 Plan of Chicago and his exhortation make no little plans they have no magic to stir men s blood and the architecturally knowledgeable know the great buildings he designed eg the Rookery in Chicago the Flatiron Building in NYC but how many know about how he utilized his relation to Chicago s business community and to important business figures like Charles H Wacker and Walter D Moody to insure that the process of change he designed would continue to inform Chicago s growth for decades As for Robert Moses most know about how extensively he transformed New York although those stuck on Bob Caro s far too well known view of him will have a much negative view of him than others of us who know the complete story and everyone knows about his highway building right but how many of you could you guess that the number of highways Moses actually built was none Parkways of course yes but highways no Read the bookAs with all of Garvin s books The Planning Game is powerfully illustrated with many gorgeous photographs he has taken Garvin will never write about a place he has not actually been and this is a lesson all architects and planners should carefully heed This volume however contains some of the most novel and informative maps and diagrams he has ever created The visuals even further imbue the already lively text with a vitality and impact that adds to the incredible clarity of the workIn many ways The Planning Game is Garvin s most radical work it will challenge many of your ideas about how the planning process actually works and about what actually happened in the development of the important cities it explores And this is true not only of the four major cities in the book but in all the many extended examples of other important instances of planning including his great discussion of planning in Boston Balti Santa Monica CA Charleston SC The legendary Mayor Joseph P Riley Jr who has successfully led Charleston s government and its growth and improvement for over 30 years has written the following for the jacket of the bookThe insights Alex Garvin brings to The Planning Game are the product of hands on experience dealing with real cities and he supports them with absolutely fascinating historical material I found this book to be a practical and indispensable road map for communities wishing to achieve excellenceSo whether you are already one of the players in the planning game and want to improve your game or whether you d like

summary The Planning Game: Lessons from Great Cities 108 Alexander Garvin ï 8 free read The Planning Game Lessons from Great Cities provides a focused thorough and sophisticated overview of how planning works generously illustrated with 200 colorful photographs diagrams and maps created expressly for the book It presents the public realm approach to planning―an approach that emphasizes the importance of public investments in what we own streets suares parks infrastructure and public buildings They are the fundamental elements in any community and are the way to determine our future The book covers planning at every level explaining the activities that go into successfully transforming a community as exemplified by four cities and their colorful motive forces Paris Baron Georges Eugene Haussmann New York Robert Moses Chicago Daniel Burnham and Philadelphia Edmund Bacon The Planning Game is an invaluable resource for planners students community leaders and everybody involved with making better places to live. In The Planning Game Alex Garvin offers a refreshing thesis for practitioners and students of the planning process It has never been all strawberries and cream Analyzing the changes imparted by four planners from different points in history Huassmann in Paris Burnham in Chicago Moses in New York and Bacon in Philadelphia Garvin ingeniously melds the statistical with the practical the historical with the professional and fundamentally the academic with the pragmatic to prove that the planning process has never been an easy enterpriseThe first two chapters of this book provide a basis for which the four principal actors can be judged Garvin offers an urban outlook that while rehearsed in his earlier work is here presented in its most refined manner and is a essential prelude to the analysis that follows Indeed by starting with a contemporary take on city planning and its imperatives Garvin only strengthens his argument that the things change the they stay the same The rules of the game as Garvin presents them may evolve around the margins but the planning process is now and has always been about grand ideas consensus building team work and the salesmanship of proposals that are agreeable to the marketplace For someone who has grown up in an environment guided by reactive rather than proactive planning this background material was a revelationAs the second half of the book unfolds Garvin s focus shifts to an analysis of the four aforementioned planners While the mere focus on these four characters suggests that they are indeed worthy of consideration Garvin s tone is admirably unbiased Not only do we hear about their triumphs but we also learn of their demises Garvin explains the brilliance of each man while also describing the downfall of each leaving the reader to make her or his own opinions about the relative efficacy of each What is paramount for all of them though is that each was a team player in the GameGarvin s research is impressive There were several times during the course of the text that this reader noted new research about the details Garvin unearths on the scale of the projects discussed Whether it is the lengths of water lines for Haussmann or the miles of highways for Moses the uantitative factual research underpins the complimentary ualitative discussions of each process The Planning Game is an art and a science and Garvin deploys a similar two punch strategy in his discussionIf complacency or hubris can be blamed for the demise of the planners discussed the depth of Garvin s research and its use in the service of an analysis rooted in professional experience ensure that this book will remain a key companion for historians and practitioners At its heart Garvin s argument should be not only refreshing to an American citizenry that has become disenfranchised by the constant excuse among its planners that things are just too hard today but also inspirational for the next generation of planners yet to confront the future of cities in an increasingly urbanized global community
