I know New Urbanism isn’t a brand new mode of thought, but I just came across a great resource with lots of articles and case-studies on it.  I’ll be diving in and learning all I can, since I’ve always been a little murky on the details.  Expect to see more references to New Urbanism in future posts, and while your waiting check out the "Field Guide to New Urbanism".  (I think this link is open to the public.  If you can’t access it, let me know and I’ll figure something out.)

Urbanism combines traditional planning and modern technology to create
places that break the conventional suburban mold to strive for
environmental balance, social integration and a sense of community
amongst a mixture of ethnic groups. Find out if this process of
reintegrating the components of modern life is popular with homebuyers,
planners, government officials, architects, developers, builders and
the real estate community.

I would love to hear your thoughts and views on New Urbanism, as well as any links you would care to share with everyone!
