New Urbanism is a movement to design walkable places where people and communities flourish; using the tools of cohousing, traditional neighborhood development, pocket neighborhoods and many others designers seek to make new places that are centered around people, not cars. By addressing more than just the built environment, Cohousing takes it a step further and intentionally seeks to rebuild the social fabric one neighborhood at a time. This presentation highlights the design, benefits, challenges and experiences of living and building neighborhoods centered around people.
