New Communities: One Alternative. A Harvard Study of a New City.
Harvard Univ., Cambridge, MA. Graduate School of Design.
The New Communities Project was the focus of the efforts of faculty and students of urban design, architecture, city and regional planning, members of the regional science group and many advisors and consultants. The orientation of the project was exploratory and experimental due to the complexity of the subject and the limitations of time. The project explored the physical and social design of a compact, moderate income, new community within the bounds of a metropolitan area. Maps, diagrams, sketches, interaction matrices, and photographs aid in explaining the development of the design concept. (TC)
