Ted Relph, Emeritus Professor in the National Post – How E.C. Relph took stock of urban planning’s unprecedented international boom
In the late 1940s, not long after the end of the Second World War, the profession of town planning experienced an unprecedented international boom.
E.C. Relph, a University of Toronto professor of geography, surveyed the results of this boom in an ambitious and intelligent book, The Modern Urban Landscape: 1880 to the Present (Johns Hopkins University Press). It appeared three decades ago and has now been re-published with Relph’s new preface.
