Beschreibung

According to Urbanism in the Age of Climate Change, relentless and thoughtless development have created a way of living that brings us to a point of reckoning regarding energy, climate change and the way we shape our communities. The answer to these crises is Sustainable Development, a thoughtful combination of good Urbanism with renewable energy sources, state of the art conservation techniques, new green technologies, and integrated services and utilities. Sustainable Urbanism, the most recent result of Peter Calthorpe's forward thinking, provides all the inherent benefits of Urbanism amplified by a new generation of ecological design, smart grids, climate responsive buildings, electric cars, and next-generation transit systems. This clearly written and beautifully designed book is an exploration of the challenges and potential shifts in our culture, economy, and environment and the ways they can affect the future of our communities.

Peter Calthorpe is the co-founder of Calthorpe Associates Inc. and the Congress for New Urbanism, focused on advocacy and major projects in urban, new town, and suburban settings in the United States and abroad.Calthorpe was named one of twenty five 'innovators on the cutting edge' by Newsweek magazine for his work redefining the models of urban and suburban growth in America. He has had a long and honored career in urban planning and architecture, to develop an environmental approach to community development and urban design.His published work includes technical papers, articles for popular magazines, and a number of books, including Sustainable Communities, the Pedestrian Pocket Book, and The Next American Metropolis: Ecology, Community, and the American Dream. Calthorpe has lectured extensively throughout the United States and the world and has received numerous honors, including two Progressive Architecture Citations, a National AIA Design Award, and two National Endowment for the Arts Grants. He was selected to represent the United States in an exchange with Russia on city and regional planning issues, and was appointed to the President's Council For Sustainable Development.
