Article metrics


THE sub-title of this remarkable book states that it is "about Nature, civilisation and planning". The author is not only an architect and an engineer, but he also possesses a deep knowledge of the biological sciences and he has attempted to apply this knowledge in town and country planning. Moreover, Mr. Říha has searched old records to find out whether man had in the past attempted to co-operate with Nature in developing civilization.
