Overview

A disparate but exuberant group of scholars are brought together in Savannah by an eminent professor to explore and debate the history and characteristics of the city and its implications for a twenty-first-century urbanism. This narrative represents a forceful and humorous interplay between formal discussion, informal interludes, irreverent comments, and less than academic relationships. Its serious purpose is to identify the urban challenges facing America in terms of containing and consolidating growth within livable communities. However, like all such participatory events it is also an opportunity for informal personal agendas set against a backdrop of real life events. The text is interspersed with ninety drawings of Savannah, illustrating its unique and multi-layered identity as a potential urban paradigm for the future.
