Architectural illustrations such as those included in this book captivate the imagination and become the embodiment of the dreams of the public and private sector. For over four decades, the architectural illustrations of Richard Rochon have provided visual evidence of the design and growth of the urban environment around the world. In Urban Reflections: Illustrated World Cities, his illustrations serve as a portrait of the dynamic changes that have occurred in urban renewal and of the myriad ways in which successful design projects in architecture, interior design, urban planning and landscape architecture have been realized, as well as they may be in the future. An invaluable sourcebook of evolving urban spaces around the world.
