The Potential of New Towns
The latest book in the "City in the 21st City" series examines the potential for new towns—large, comprehensively planned developments on newly urbanized land—to address looming urban development challenges around the world. New Towns for the Twenty-First Century: A Guide to Planned Communities Worldwide brings together international and interdisciplinary contributors to examine new town design, planning, finances, management, governance, quality of life, and sustainability. Penn IUR interviewed editors Richard Peiser and Ann Forsyth on the implications of these projects around the world.
