9783836498357: Beyond Density: Measuring Neighborhood Form: Deriving Urban Form Measures for Neighborhoods, Blocks, and Streets in New England Towns

A new paradigm in ecological design calls for transforming out-moded development patterns into more sustainable communities supporting healthier, pedestrian-oriented lifestyles. Proponents of smart growth and new urbanism argue compact, mixed use, and walkable neighborhoods will reduce energy use, foster social interaction, and promote active living associated with lowered risks of heart disease and obesity. However, emerging research findings in this area have been limited by conventional built environment measures (i.e. density, land use mix) that fail to adequately describe key urban form differences as independent variables--especially at finer grained scales of urban design. This book describes the development of a more robust series of simple, replicable metrics to measure key landscape qualities. Using a set of twelve case studies from New England towns, successful measures are derived and tested at two scales: the broader neighborhood and the more detailed realm of street, block, and building. This work has broad application to academics and professionals in architecture, urban planning, public health, geography, transportation, energy, and sustainable development.
