Best defined as the art of shaping the built environment, urban design seeks to understand and analyse the variety of forces social, economic, cultural, legal, ecological and aesthetic that affect how we live. The complex challenges facing cities today scarcity of resources, growing economic divisions and rampant sprawl, among others are forcing a reconsideration of urban design.

New Urbanism, a leading movement within urban design, advocates a return to small-town urban forms: human-scale, pedestrian-friendly streets, a reinvigoration of cities and a stop to suburban sprawl. This new volume, drawing on a conference and debates at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden, comprehensively examines New Urbanism today and speculates about its future. With contributions from Christopher Alexander, Leon Krier, Peter Hall andAndrs Duany, among others, New Urbanism and Beyond is both a comprehensive primer on urban design and a provocation for practitioners, historians, and citizens everywhere.
