Peter Bosselmann is professor of urban design at the University of
California, Berkeley and author of Urban Transformation: Understanding
City Design and Form (Island Press, November 2008). His latest book
explores why some cities thrive while others deteriorate, and includes
maps and satellite images from the Bay Area and other major metropolitan
regions around the world. Bosselmann has taught in Europe, Australia, and
Asia, and was commissioned to work on urban design plans in San Francisco,
New York, Toronto, and Tokyo. In 2007 he established an urban research
laboratory in Milan, the fourth such laboratory that he modeled after the
well-known Berkeley Environmental Simulation Laboratory.
Copies of Peter Bosselmann's books will be available for purchase courtesy
