New Urbanism & The Old City

Description: 

Definite differences exist between the “Old Urbanism” and the New Urbanism, most clearly manifested in the work done within the existing historic city. Unlike prior attempts at creating a more competitive inner city by making it more suburban, the New Urbanism appropriates the managerial techniques of the suburban developers while rejecting their forms. This unique combination has proven markedly successful, although not without certain negative social consequences.
