    Date Released

    Out of Print


    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
