The Smart Growth Manual PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Smart Growth Manual free pdf This is a comprehensive full-color guide to applying new urbanist and green methodologies to urban and suburban growth. From the authors of Suburban Nation, this full-color manual explains how to implement the strategies of new urbanism, green design, and urban sustainability. You will learn how to create and enhance mixed-use, pedestrian-friendly communities as an alternative to suburban sprawl. Sprawl, which evolved after World War II, is not a smart growth system - it does not pay for itself financially- it consumes land at an alarming rate- it produces transportation problems- and, it promotes social inequity. "The Smart Growth Manual" presents a clear blueprint for developing cities and suburbs in the most user-friendly, cost-efficient, and environmentally sustainable manner. The book covers preservation of natural amenities and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)-Neighborhood Development, and is lavishly illustrated with important examples of built work by leading urban designers.
