Innovation in planning is essential to dealing with the challenges society currently faces, from urban sprawl to climate change. In this book, Avi Friedman looks at both new and revived sustainable strategies at a neighborhood level to explore options for both rehabilitating older communities as well as options for those projects being designed from scratch. The book takes a holistic approach to sustainable community design, covering aspects such as: - Transportation and how to avoid reliance on private vehicles - Ecological, psychological and economic values of open spaces - Neighborhood resilience and health - Affordability and energy consumption Interviews with and information from designers of sustainable communities provide first-hand insight into their development. Outstanding illustrated case studies from communities throughout the world add depth and insight into this important subject.
