Author and urbanist Douglas 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.
