New Urbanism and the American Metropolis
Abstract:A preliminary assessment is made of the influence to date of the New Urbanism on environmental design education and practice, as well as its achievements in built projects, planning processes, and public design values in the United States. Although there have been some significant achievements, it is concluded that its value is limited and that there are many aspects of the contemporary city that cannot be addressed by New Urbanist principles and patterns.
