9780071806077: Charter of the New Urbanism, 2nd Edition

THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO THE PRINCIPLES OF NEW URBANISM--FULLY REVISED

The Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU) is the leading organization promoting walkable, mixed-use neighborhood development, sustainable communities, and healthier living conditions. Thoroughly updated to cover the latest environmental, economic, and social implications of urban design, Charter of the New Urbanism, Second Edition features insightful writing from 62 authors on each of the Charter's principles. Real-world case studies, plans, and examples are included throughout.

This pioneering guide explains how to restore urban centers, reconfigure sprawling suburbs, conserve environmental assets, and preserve our built legacy. It examines communities at three separate but interdependent levels:

  • The region: Metropolis, city, and town
  • Neighborhood, district, and corridor
  • Block, street, and building

Featuring new photos and illustrations, this practical, up-to-date resource is invaluable for design professionals, developers, planners, elected officials, and citizen activists.

New coverage includes:

  • Urban-to-Rural Transect
  • Form-based codes
  • Light Imprint community design
  • Retrofitting suburbia
  • Tactical Urbanism
  • Canons of Sustainable Architecture and Urbanism
  • And much more
