I really like this. I kinda read the middle third, seems to be based on various types of surveys of people in different cities and trying to make sense of how people make sense of the city, and how they navigate the space in real time and in their heads, specifically tying this to attempts at controlling/planning/designing these environments and suggestions (though very measured) for future work in this respect. Nice to read alongside Jane Jacobs (published around the same time).
