The new Urbanism

The heart of New Urbanism is this principles that places should be walkable, interconnected, fine-grained, human scale, and mixed-used to the greatest degree possible.

Also, they believe that places should be beautiful and spiritually satisfying; and furthermore that one can discover the keys to placemaking by carefully oberving the qualites of good places.

Streets are not just for cars, but also for pedestrians, bicyclist, and users of public transit. Streets are where people live, shop, and work !
