Duany and Waldheim Battle Over Streets

New urbanist Andres Duany has been speaking out against the "landscape urbanism" movement for months, particularly against Harvard's Charles Waldheim for embracing it. At CNU19, Duany invited Waldheim to have his say and respond.

Robert Steutville reports from last week's Congress for the New Urbanism in Madison, Wisconsin, where landscape architect Charles Waldheim was invited to make his case:

"Much of the discussion has focused on whether Landscape Urbanism, which specializes in expansive open spaces that celebrate ecological features, represents a greener form of sprawl. Based on the comments by Harvard's Charles Waldheim, the biggest name in Landscape Urbanism, and a response by Andres Duany, the biggest name in New Urbanism, at the Congress for the New Urbanism June 4, the sprawl accusation seems misplaced.

The real issue is the design of what lies just beyond everybody's front door."
