Description: Decentralization and the flight to the suburbs have drained the economic and cultural life out of many communities, and driven the consumption of land area and fuel to new heights. In the thoughtful and insightful The Urban Oasis, Roxanne Warren makes a compelling case for the benefits of high-density, mixed use, car-free communities that are beautiful, sensible, and self-reliant. Many international examples of such developments are included.

Incorporating the principles of the New Urbanism and transit villages, Warren shows architects, planners, developers, and policymakers how to plan and build "development clusters" that are designed as pedestrian zones, lavishly landscaped, and accessible to peripheral parking. These human-scale communities can share both rural and urban advantages, and answer many of the growing environmental and population pressures of today.
