Books by Pratt School of Architecture faculty members Eric W. Allison and Ned Kaufman were recently featured by Design Observer’s “Places Journal” in a roundup of recent works on architecture, urban planning, and design.

For both the preservation professional and urban planner, Historic Preservation and the Livable City by Allison details how preservation of individual buildings and historic districts is a key ingredient to the success of vibrant and thriving cities. Place, Race, and Story: Essays on the Past and Future of Historic Preservation by Kaufman is dedicated to the proposition of giving the next generation of preservationists not only a foundational knowledge of the field of study, but more ideas on where they can take it.
