Designing for the New Economy

The New Urban Guild, an association of some 60 prominent designers with New Urbanist leanings, met January 10 in Miami to formulate a strategy for creating sustainable architecture for the new American future. The Guild is determined to create a new series of building types that not only hit affordability marks but also satisfy ambitious goals of environmental responsibility, energy efficiency, safety, durability, and neighborhood friendliness. While times seem hard, says New Urban Guild founder Steve Mouzon, the new era can reward innovation and a commitment to high design standards.
