Designing healthy and sustainable communities
Posted on August 1st, 2011

One of the most important tasks of the 21st century is designing healhy and sustainable communities; ones that work for people and the planet. This is beautifully captured by Jo Allen Gause, Great Planned Communities, Urban Land Institute:

"Many believe there is a new quest for community, for that intangible sense of neighbourhood and belonging that provides the critical framework within which generations can learn and grow, interact and mature, thrive and evolve.

Or perhaps it can be thought of as a return to community, albeit one that is geared to the realities of our present day. Developers, planners and architects are focusing on the physical elements of community design that can enhance livability, facilitate social interaction, and foster a sense of communal satisfaction."
