In architecture and urban planning, a revolution has been taking place aiming to heal the wounds inflicted upon the landscape by the Modern and Postmodern eras. These wounds are manifested as sprawl, the growing perception of fear, a declining sense of community, and environmental degradation. This design revolution is relatively quiet because its practitioners are not unified under a single banner and because their sensitivity to people and the environment translates into design that may not call attention to itself. Nonetheless, numerous stones have been thrown around the globe, and their still small but growing ripples are beginning to reshape dramatically our physical environment while enhancing our quality of life.
