Dr. Sies Receives Best Edited Prize by International Planning History Society

Drs. Mary Corbin Sies, Isabelle Gournay, and Robert Freestone’s Iconic Planned Communities and the Challenge of Change (Philadelphia: University of Pennsylvania Press 2019) has been selected to receive the best edited prize for 2020. by the International Planning History Society.

From UPenn Press:

“Dealing with 23 iconic planned communities, built in six continents from the early nineteenth to the late twentieth centuries, the book addresses the issue of how visionary spirit comes to terms with reality and the challenges of change. Fascinating in its historic scope and drawing on the broad interdisciplinary perspective of the 25 prominent authors involved, the book not only encourages comparative analysis but also argues that in the future the cross-fertilization of the strategies deployed by single cases may contribute to achieve ongoing liveability and resilience, thus sustaining these planning legacies.”
