Six Trending Urbanist Themes for the New Year

Chuck Wolfe analyzes his 2011 articles which appeared on Planetizen and in other sources, and derives his urbanist trends to watch for in 2012.

Wolfe summarizes the past year's professional experiences and links to featured articles, offering several themes that he expects will endure.

The themes, which span six subject areas, include: "More Roles for Social Media", "Renewed Attention to the Romantic City" and "New Types of Regulation and Urban Places".

Wolfe concludes with the heading "Additional Ways to Conceive of Urban Opportunity", which he calls "a dialogue that may never end".
