The science of avoiding and ameliorating this sort of visual pollution is a modern technology. Visual pollution in Japan has resulted from the same vicious cycle we have seen in other aspects of its life: in the case of the environment, construction breeds dependence on more construction; in banking, deception leads to greater deception; in urban design, ugliness gradually comes to be taken for granted, which leads to ignorance and thus to more ugliness. An architect friend of mine, Lucilo Pena, helped to design the Four Seasons Hotel in Barcelona, in which the Japanese department store Sogo was one of the investors. Lucilo tells of acrimonious discussions between the hotel operators and the Japanese owners concerning signs, for Sogo wanted a huge flashing sign on the outside of the hotel, and it seemed impossible to convince Sogo's management that in Barcelona this was considered a plan that would damage the ambience of the city and lower the prestige of both the department-store owners and the hotel. Sogo gave in when its representatives realized that in the West citizens might resort to boycotts of a company that flouts local concerns, but it came as a shock ...

|Economic Value of Urban Design|
First, the design, promotion, organization, and economic restructuring components of the Main Street Program ' s comprehensive four-point approach were surveyed in the active districts. Next, the economic changes that took place within these districts were analyzed. Finally, a variety of citywide economic indicators were compared for a five-year period among three categories of cities: those active in the Main Street Program, those formerly active but now inactive, and those who have not participated. This book reveals the types of changes that occurred in the components of the four-point approach in relation to the local economic activity within the Main Street districts and cities in Texas. It should be especially useful to scholars, professionals, and decision makers in Architecture, Design, and Planning fields, or anyone who have vested interests in urban design and economic value. This book explores and evaluates this complex relationship with reference to the 136 Texas Main Street Program districts in order to shed some light on the broader question as to whether urban design generates economic value. The relationship between urban design and economic activity is seldom studied through empirical and scholarly research with a large number of cities due, in part, to the implicit and intangible nature of design.
