Trancik publishes Garden Cities
Together with Kurt Dillon (M.R.P. ’06) and photographer Sam Sweezy, Roger Trancik, emeritus professor of city and regional planning, published the exhibit book Garden Cities of the Panama Canal in November.
The project was sponsored by AAP’s Clarence S. Stein Institute. The book, which includes a forward by Professor Robert Fishman, University of Michigan, features a collection of photographs and narratives that examines the presence of the Garden City/New Town movement in Panama, and explains how these Canal Zone garden cities were also pioneering attempts to adapt the garden city idea to tropical conditions.
Photographs in the book originally appeared in an exhibit in John Hartell Gallery in March 2007.
