"Urban Research (UR) is a series of books published by Terreform"--T.p. verso.

Gowntown investigates the impact of Columbia University's massive expansion into Upper Manhattan and proposes strategies of transformative leverage to generate broad community benefit and counter a spreading urbanism of trickle-down and gentrification. Terreform's multi-scalar design is grounded in a planning paradigm focused on carefully crafted-as well as spontaneous-institutional, social, and environmental connections, inspired by the public possibilities of one of the world's great concentrations of educational, medical, cultural, and community assets. Gowntown is addressed to all the people living, working, and studying uptown, presenting a collection of ideas that radically bridge the familiar-and too often hostile-divide between gown and town.
