New Urbanism

The most important planning movement this century, and is about creating a better future for us all. New Urbanism is the revival of our lost art of place-making…the way communities have been built for centuries around the world.

New urbanism promotes the restoration of diverse, walkable, compact, mixed-use neighborhoods, towns, and cities assembled in a more integrated fashion. These contain housing, work places, shops, entertainment, schools, parks, civic facilities essential to the daily lives, all within easy walking distance. Currently there are 500 New Urbanist projects in the United States.
