Urban Design Conference. New Communities - One Alternative. Proceedings (12th, Harvard Graduate School of Design, Cambridge, Massachusetts, June 7-8, 1968).
Harvard Univ., Cambridge, MA. Graduate School of Design.
The nature of this conference, the product of a year's work by an interdisciplinary team, was that of a giant critique, where the subject of discussion was a high-density, compact new city. Participants in the conference gave their comments and questions on the New Communities Project material that had been presented in both verbal and graphic form. The major areas of discussion were concerned with--(1) the environmental implications of compact design, (2) economic efficiency, and (3) whether the compact design can be implemented. (TC)
