    National Geographic - New Urbansim, the New Suburb?

    http://www.nationalgeographic.com/ea...dex_flash.html

    great interactive tool to describe the density changes experienced using form based zoning. Good for a basic introduction to new urbanism/form based codes for the unfamiliar.
    Dude, I'm cheesing so hard right now.

    pretty cool

    That's a nice simple primer on the general ideas....of human habitation until 50 years ago.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Six seasons and a movie!

    I thought it was pretty campy and didn't really give a good visualization of what NU is really about. To see it best you really need a birds-eye view.

    pretty cool...I would just fear walking around in an area with no stop lights or signs - they probably just over looked that. Still kinda funny though.

    If you click on some of the things, a window pops up with a birds-eye view.
