In Cities, Lawrence Halprin examines the basic elements of the cityscape: the open spaces that give a city its character and the spaces within which its life takes place (streets, plazas, parks, the private living spaces and small gardens); street furniture (kiosks, benches, light); the city floor (asphalt, brick, concrete); water; trees; roofviews; and what Halprin calls the "choreography" of the city. This edition includes a section on Halprin's fountains.

"The text is sparse and excited: Halprin is obviously enthralled with the urban experience. This is a book of examples, and therefore photographs. They are as exuberant as the words.... Although most of the images are familiar, it is nice to see them put together in such a handsome package."
— Architectural Forum
"Halprin has a great many important things to say and show with his superb photographs. And one can only hope that not only architects and planners but also municipal officials and the rest of the urban 'power structure' will listen and look.... For all collections on art, architecture and urban problems."
— Wolf Von Eckardt, Library Journal
