Landscape architect and land planner Julie Campoli and aerial photographer Alex S. MacLean have joined forces with the Lincoln Insitute to create a full-color, richly illustrated book to help planners, designers, public officials, and citizens better communicate to others the concept of density as it applies to the residential environment.

Organized in three sections, this book offers an essay on the density challenge facing the United States, an illustrated manual on planning and designing for "good" density, and a density catalog of more than 250 diverse neighborhoods across the country, noting the density in housing units per acre for each site. Four photographs of each location are included-close-up, context, neighborhood, and plan views-to provide an impartial and comparative view of many ways to design neighborhoods.
