New Urbanism, Sustainable Urbanism and the Prince of Wales

Blessed are the 'place-makers?'

This article details an effort by Prince Charles and his Foundation for the Built Environment to promote New Urbanism, or sustainable urbanism, as they call it in England, through the UK, and the rest of the world.

Heralded a success by residents of his developments, for their intrinsic convenience and community building atmosphere, but as a "pastiche" or architectural hodgepodge by critics, this positively spun article gives good insight to the great strides that New Urbanism is making towards international acceptance.
