Used book in very good conditon.The author is a Quenslander who has spent his working career spanning forty years as a local authority engineer and a consulting engineer and town planner. As a director of a large consulting group, he was responsible for the Division of Urban and Environmental Planning. He has travelled widely, ever curious as to aspects of planning and engineering as practised by others. His interest in aesthetics springs from a concern that modern town planning is being frustrated by a lack of understanding of "what makes a city tick" - Aesthetics of Townscape falls into this area. Not often does one find a Fellow of the Institution of Engineers, Australia, and Fellow of the Royal Australian Planning Institute, understanding and sensitive to an issue such as visual amenity. Nor does one often encouter a person, who has experienced the rigors of pioneering type engineering in rough and harsh Northern Australia, concerned about aesthetics and art. The author's long standing interest in painting and sketching has facilitated this book to be illustrated in a dynamic and relevant manner with the majority of drawings emanating from his own pen. 168 pages.
