How do you design a community to be both livable and sustainable? More importantly, how do you know if that design really worked? Harrison Fraker goes beyond abstract principles, providing a clear evaluation of the first-generation of sustainable neighborhoods. Using concrete performance data to gage successes and failures, he presents a holistic model based on best practices.
