The Charter of the New Urbanism is deliberately style-neutral regarding architecture:  “Individual architectural projects should be seamlessly linked to their surroundings. This issue transcends style.”  What does this mean for specific projects?  In particular, how can the modernist emphasis on individuality and creativity be reconciled with the need for a coherent public realm?  Three of New Urbanism’s most articulate theorists and practitioners discuss how codes can permit diversity of stylistic expression, while preserving a functional public realm and quality of place.
