In case you’ve ever wondered what New Urbanism is, here’s an entertaining video, which won a contest sponsored by the Congress for the New Urbanism.
The film, which was produced by First + Main Media from Julian, California, and Paget Films from Buffalo, New York, visually represents New Urbanist ideas and blames sprawl for the end of civilization. But, it’s a good introduction to New Urbanist ideas.
Congress for the New Urbanism created the film contest to promote its annual conference. This year’s conference, “CNU 17,” will be held in Denver on June 10-14. Here’s a link to some of the other submissions to the contest. Via NRDC.org.
