New Urbanism: Is It Just A Facade?
"Im a big fan of the New Urbanism. Who wouldnt want to bail out on reality? Imagine brick row houses separated by alleys, children playing baseball in the park, moms pushing strollers down tree-lined streets, dad leaning over a wooden-rail fence, pruning shears in hand, visiting with a friend while cotton-ball clouds float in a blue sky.Its such a perfect scene you can almost taste the sepia.
The New Urbanism may bring back a snapshot of that eras ambience, but its merely window dressing, an empty shell of aesthetics minus the reality."
