A Negotiated Landscape
summary
A Negotiated Landscape examines the transformation of San Francisco’s iconic waterfront from the eve of its decline in 1950 to the turn of the millennium. What was once a major shipping port is now best known for leisure and entertainment. To understand this landscape Jasper Rubin not only explores the built environment but also the major forces that have been at work in its redevelopment. While factors such as new transportation technology and economic restructuring have been essential to the process and character of the waterfront’s transformation, the impact of local, grassroots efforts by planners, activists, and boosters have been equally critical. While centered on San Francisco, A Negotiated Landscape illuminates the processes by which many American cities have negotiated the demands of public and private interests. This second edition includes a revised introduction and concluding chapter that update the progress of planning on San Francisco’s waterfront to the present day.
