New Urbanism

Sanford Kwinter

Published in "Requiem for the City at the End of the Millenium", 2010.

The new urbanism does not fix its attention on the rigid and monumental. It does not plan, it does not precisely or inflexibly impose and it does not fetishize the integrity and pristine unfolding of the fixed abstract scheme.

The new urbanism is a moving urbanism, a pastoral urbanism of inflection.
