Reseña del editor:

The bestselling guide to forward-looking urban planning and design Sustainable Urbanism explores and celebrates innovation in sustainable living, and calls for leadership in the design and development of urban spaces. Written by the former chair of the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED for Neighborhood Development (LEED-ND) Core Committee, this book provides a comprehensive introduction to sustainability in urban planning while emphasizing the urgency of need. This updated second edition is fully aligned with LEED-ND, the CNU's 2030 Communities Campaign for low-carbon neighborhoods, Obama administration sustainability initiatives, and the Kyoto Treaty's 80 percent CO2 decrease by 2050, and includes new case studies that reflect emerging trends and technologies while providing further validation of the presented practices based on the author's own projects. Contributions by leading authorities on urban planning, design, and architecture include discussion on density, transportation, accessibility, high-performance buildings, walkability, and more, including detailed coverage of the health and environmental benefits of sustainable urban spaces. Sustainable living is increasingly gaining ground as the urgency of the environmental situation moves from speculation into reality. This book describes how urban planning with an eye toward impact can improve both the health of the planet and the lives of its occupants. * Facilitate sustainable living through forward-looking design * Integrate transportation with land use, and localize utilities * Design walkable neighborhoods, car-free areas, and universal accessibility * Discover the individual and global benefits of linking humans to nature The surge of regulatory, strategic, and public attention to sustainability issues has pushed innovation and development ahead at a frenetic pace; possibilities are expanding almost as quickly as our collective yearning for something better. With the latest facts, best practices, and forward-thinking concepts, Sustainable Urbanism is an essential resource for those who design the places we live, work, and play.

—Peter Calthorpe, Principle and Co-Founder, Calthorpe Analytics

"Sustainable Nation by Doug Farr makes a powerful case that to accelerate progress on our world's biggest challenges we need to integrate community voices with urban design principles."
—Jacky Grimshaw, Vice President for Government Affairs, Center for Neighborhood Technology

"Doug Farr's Sustainable Nation is a must-have guide for people working locally to rapidly create vibrant, diverse, and decarbonized communities—the most impactful way to urgently respond to climate change and other major global challenges."
—Ed Mazria, Founder and CEO of Architecture 2030

A PREFERRED FUTURE AS FAST AS POSSIBLE

From bestselling author Douglas Farr comes Sustainable Nation: Urban Design Patters for the Future. His 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. Given the urgency of the many challenges that society now faces, Sustainable Nation hopes to accomplish an even more dramatic shift: to focus on how long change takes and the many ways to drive change faster than ever before. The book posits that society can overcome our major challenges around decarbonization in four generations: the lifetime of a child born today.

Sustainable Nation: Urban Design Patterns for the Future presents in four parts: Our Default World: an infographic snapshot of today that triggers empathy; Our Preferred Future: fictional short stories and timelines that evoke a preferred future; Theory of Change: a sobering deep dive into how long change takes and an ultimately hopeful cataloging of how to speed it up; and Patterns of Change: immediately actionable guidance from development experts on how groups of people, not affiliated with government, can accelerate desired neighborhood and professional change. Readers will find that this book:

  • Provides an understanding of the future of urban trends and design
  • Recognizes that to address climate change, one must overcome irrational quirks of the human brain (heuristics) through framing, nudges, and by restitching our torn social fabric
  • Challenges culture by providing practitioners, students, and local actors with urban design patterns that can be immediately applied to guide the betterment of neighborhoods

Sustainable Nation seeks to shift the sustainability conversation towards the issue of how to change faster than ever before. It is an ideal guidebook for urban designers, planners, policymakers, architects, engaged stakeholders, and anyone who is eager to make a positive impact on our—and our descendants'—buildings, cities, and lives.
