Victor Gruen (1903-1980) is the commercial architect who became renowned in the 1950s America as the "pioneer of shopping center", then by his urban redevelopement projects as the "saviour of the downtowns", and by the mid-1960s as the "architect of environment". This book will focus on Gruen's theories and projects in the American practice between 1938 and 1968: especially with respect to the return of the city centre and urban culture as the focus of social and cultural life of the region.
