Urbanism in Evolution: New Urbanism and Beyond

Tags for this publication:

This paper outlines an evolutionary interpretation of urbanism, and suggests how an evolutionary perspective can articulate some of the challenges faced by New Urbanism. The paper first suggests that although a city may be 'organic', this does not mean that a city is an organism; however, a city can usefully be interpreted in evolutionary terms. The paper goes on to discuss how we can learn from the evolutionary nature of urbanism, and direct attention and application towards New Urbanism, and beyond.
