New Urbanism Segment from CBS Sunday Morning on 20 May 2007


Below are resources featured in the video.

  • Andres Duany and Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk of DPZ. “DPZ creates benevolent urban places in the form of cities, towns and neighborhoods, which encourage walking, diversity and complexity. Our projects generate the physical framework for a fulfilling human existence. Safe, pedestrian-friendly streets encourage people to walk in and interact with their built and natural surroundings. A well-designed public realm, including “third places”, where people hang out beyond home and work, facilitates the creation of social networks and affiliations. Recent studies correlate the impact of the physical environment on human health and well-being. DPZ’s built projects show that, given the choice, people enjoy living in sustainable communities. People seek out our neighborhoods instead of suburban enclaves because they are environmentally responsible, and because they promote fulfillment and well-being.”
  • Kentlands. “New Urbanism is a design movement, which promotes walkable neighborhoods that include homes, town homes, live-work units, and condominiums. This architectural movement started in the United States in the early 1980s and is a model for many new community plans both here in the United States and in the world. Kentlands is considered to be one of the oldest new urbanist communities in the United States.”
  • Seaside – “Acclaimed world-wide as one of the iconic examples of New Urbanism.”
