The Readers Corner
Seaside, Florida, turns forty this year, making it the perfect time for the release of Reflections on Seaside by acclaimed architect, author, and Urbanism expert Dhiru A. Thadani. The book celebrates the town that inspired countless designers, architects, urban planners, and everyday citizens in the search for the ideal place to live. Its pages feature new projects built there since Thadani’s first book, Visions of Seaside, was released in 2013 and offers a blueprint for moving into the future. New essays by Robert A.M. Stern, Andrés Duany, Deborah Berke, Steven Holl, Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, Ray Gindroz, and Scott Merrill examine New Urbanism and topics such as sustainability and the environment. Thadani hopes this new volume will cement Seaside’s place in the forum of traditional Urbanism as a city of ideas and a major influence on innovative urban planning.
