Abstract:

The paper sets the New Urbanism into three contexts. A clause-by-clause analysis of the Charter for New Urbanism places it in the international family of policy responses to the challenge of sustainable development. A comparison with earlier urbanisms positions this generic new urbanism within the long historical traffic of ideas and ideals in modern town planning. The paper ends with an assessment of New Urbanism on its home ground, as a specifically US-based response to the contemporary crisis of the American Dream.
