New Urbanism – the way back!

At a recent seminar held by Bofrämjandet, Peter Elmlund, project manager at Urban City Research at KTH, gave insights to how new urbanism is gaining more and more grounds in city development. New Urbanism is an urban design movement which promotes walkable neighborhoods containing a range of housing and job types. One of the most important aspects of New Urbanism i the importance of the Public Space. By improving the public space, the value of the gound and facilities around that public space increases more than the developing cost.
