Abstract: The members of the various professions engaged in the planning, designing, and building of American communities must demonstrate greater awareness of the visual result and the over-all aesthetic appearance of a community. Such increased attention is necessary if a civilization is to be developed that will truly meet the needs of its citizens today and will be worthy of lasting.
