Author and urbanistDouglas Farr’s bestselling first book, Sustainable Urbanism: Urban Design with Nature, helped shift the focus of urban sustainability from the stand-alone building to the high-performance neighborhood. Now, Farr returns with Sustainable Nation: Urban Design Patterns for the Future, in which he seeks to move the conversation even further — and faster — forward. Farr proposes more than 70 specific, aspirational urban design patterns, each of which provides guidance on a key aspect of a neighborhood, and all of which can be immediately applied. Join Farr as he provides a hopeful roadmap for overcoming our society’s major sustainability challenges in just four generations.
