A new urban design blog, www.NewUrbanismBlog.com, recently launched, offering insight to the online architecture and design community to promote walkable communities. The site is operated by 180° Urban Design and Architecture. Kevin Klinkenberg, principal of 180° Urban Design, describes a walkable community as more than just a place to live. "A great community is accessible, vibrant, pedestrian-friendly and draws people together."
New Urbanism promotes neighborhoods where people can shop, play, dine, learn and even work, all within their own neighborhood.
