For its third year in a row, re:place Magazine has drawn up a list of their favorite books pertaining to urban and architectural issues—this year, the list included What We See among the top titles. re:place is a non-profit organization devoted to fostering diverse and open discussion for the expanding public interest in urban development and renewal, especially in the Greater Vancouver area. Books chosen for the Top Ten are both new titles published in 2010 and older titles they believe deserve to be rediscovered by urban enthusiasts.
Reviewer Lisa Brideau writes, “Jane Jacobs is an iconic figure in the field of urban planning and to those generally interested in city-related issues. This makes creating a book with her name emblazoned so boldly on the cover extremely courageous and sets readers up for some mighty high expectations. Yet this is the challenge editors Lynne Elizabeth and Stephen Goldsmith set out to face with their most recent book."
