Chicago City Planning Consultant Doug Farr has written a great book, Sustainable Urbanism: Urban Design with Nature.
Doug Farr believes that "sustainable urbanism" is more than designing green buildings. It also includes the creation of green neighborhoods and planning for sustainable urban growth. Farr describes the design reform movement and gives tips on how to create sustainable urbanism through leadership and communication in cities, communities, and neighborhoods.
