The Sustainable City
The last ten years have produced a burst of visionary principles and standards designed to reform patterns of human settlement—Ahwahnee, Hanover, Aalborg Charter, CNU Charter, Smart Growth, LEED, and theTransect. As a result, today the goals of sustainability
and urbanism are coming together. This panel convenes
leaders in government, academia, and new
urban practice working to forge a meaningful union
of these sometimes reinforcing, sometimes contradicting
sets of principles.
