Project Database

This searchable database of projects represents the range and diversity of work in the New Urbanism. From regional-scale visions to single-building historic renovations, CNU members and their allies build places people love through land use planning, development, policy, and advocacy. If you are aware of a project that you believe should be part of the database, please email Robert Steuteville or Lisa Schamess.

Pompidou Expressway

Paris, France

The Seine has long been a source of cultural and artistic inspiration for Parisians and even the world, becoming a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1991.

Manzanares River Banks

Madrid, Spain

More information coming soon.

Riverfront Parkway

Chattanooga, Tennessee

The Riverfront Parkway in Chattanooga, Tennessee, once conceived as a waterfront freight route quickly became a physical barrier to the city’s riverfront.

Park East Freeway

Milwaukee, Wisconsin

The Park East Freeway was an unfinished highway intended to extend east towards Lake Michigan and then run south along the shore.

Cheonggye Freeway

Seoul, South Korea

High-volume expressways were a symbol of economic progress after the Korean War in South Korea. In Seoul, “progress” came with an ecological cost.

The Big Dig

Boston, Massachusetts

When Boston opened the Central Artery highway in 1959, it effectively serviced an estimated 75,000 vehicles daily.

Jean Lafitte Tomorrow

Jean Lafitte, Louisiana

Of all the projects recognized by the 2013 Charter Awards jury, this project inspired particular warmth – particular enough to create a special award of recognition for its locally driven, handcrafted approach.

Havana Waterfront

Havana, Cuba

As part of an eight-week urban studio that involved a trip to Havana, fifth-year University of Notre Dame architecture students were tasked with repairing the city’s waterfront along the Avenida de Puerto.

After Burnham

Chicago, Illinois

In these stunning renderings from the University of Notre Dame, you will likely recognize the City of Chicago. Or at least, the echoes of today’s Chicago, seen through the lens of a possible year 2109.

Barn

Weiler-la-Tour, Luxembourg

It is highly likely that in the history of the Charter Awards, this is the first barn to receive the honor. But, as the jury noted, the Charter recognizes that urbanism happens at all scales, and the transect stretches from urban to rural.
