THE FUTURE NOW

New Urbanism


New Urbanism is a school of city planning and architecture that centers on walkable neighborhoods with a diversity of housing and job opportunities. New Urbanist neighborhoods include well-defined centers, schools and businesses within walking distance of residences, and narrow streets lined with trees. Proponents of New Urbanism tout its fostering of strong community ties, and lessening dependence on cars. While the movement has faced tough competition from the automobile industry, there are hundreds of cities, towns and neighborhoods in the United States guided by New Urbanist principles, including the famous town of Seaside, Florida.
