APA Audio/Web Conference: Jane Jacobs' Legacy and New Urbanism One-Hour Lecture
American Planning Association
Jane Jacobs, a key urban thinker of the 20th century, continues to have a major impact on the theory and practice of community design. New urbanism, in particular, invokes her ideas. But how do Jacobs' ideas and new urbanist tenets actually mesh? Where has her legacy been sustained and where has it changed to accommodate modern communities? Take a step back, see the wider picture, and consider the ongoing impact of "big thinkers" on planning.
