This translation is from , but the book itself was originally published in Vienna in Fin de siecle Vienna in the middle of its drive towards modernity , this is a curiously ambivalent book that looks to the past in order to reimagine an urban future. Simultaneously with this understanding of such organic town pattern, and subsequently to a great extent as a logical consequence of it … there became laid an equally strong groundwork for such an understanding of architecture that even the architectural style-form must express contemporary conditions, and no other conditions. This is essentially a look at what works about older cities, and it connects patterns in architecture and planning with patterns of social life. So it has half the equation I think is needed. The other half is how architecture and planning in turn shapes social life in the dialectic that Henri Lefebvre would explore among others.

Camillo Sitte was a noted Austrian architect, painter and theoretician who exercised great influence on the development of urban planning in Europe and the United States.
Sitte strongly criticized the current emphasis on broad, straight boulevards, public squares arranged primarily for the convenience of traffic, and efforts to strip major public or religious landmarks of adjoining smaller structures regarded as encumbering such monuments of the past.
Sitte proposed instead to follow what he believed to be the design objectives of those whose streets and buildings shaped medieval cities. He advocated curving or irregular street alignments to provide ever-changing vistas.
He called for T-intersections to reduce the number of possible conflicts among streams of moving traffic. He pointed out the advantages of what came to be know as "turbine squares"--civic spaces served by streets entering in such a way as to resemble a pin-wheel in plan. His teachings became widely accepted in Austria, Germany, and Scandinavia, and in less than a decade his style of urban design came to be accepted as the norm in those countries.

Camillo Sitte 17 April — 16 November was an Austrian architect , painter and urban theorist whose work influenced urban planning and land use regulation. Today, Sitte is best remembered for his book, City Planning According to Artistic Principles , in which he examined and documented the traditional, incremental approach to urbanism in Europe, with a close focus on public spaces in Italy and the Germanic countries. Camillo Sitte was born Vienna in He was an art historian and architect whose writings, according to Eliel Saarinen , were familiar to German-speaking architects of the late 19th century. He was educated and influenced by Rudolf von Eitelberger and Heinrich von Ferstel , and on the recommendation of Eitelberger Sitte became the head of the new State Trade School in Salzburg in , but Sitte returned to Vienna in to establish similar school there. Sitte saw architecture was a process and product of culture. Camillo Sitte was the son of the architect Franz Sitte —79 and the father of the architect Siegfried Sitte —
Camillo Sitte: The Art of Building Cities
Sitte focused on site design for urban spaces, and remains one of the most important aesthetic analysts of traditional European urbanism. A quote:. Today, features like statues, sculptures, fountains, and obelisks may seem mere afterthoughts to core questions of urban planning. For Sitte, who considered the fine art of planning to extend down to the precise details of every urban space, such a presumption about ornament could not be more wrong. Always skeptical of overly rationalistic designs, Sitte is adamant about the value of irregularity. He contends that the modern desire for symmetry is misguided.
