Garden Cities

15 September 2016

This year, the European heritage days will highlight the notion of citizenship.

Garden cities, an ideal to be pursued?

More than just creating homes by reconciling city and nature, the garden cities responded to a social ideal, a utopia of community life in respect of one another. At a point in time where we are building eco-districts should we not use this model to create, in part, the city of tomorrow? In other words, how can we re-examine the principles and the values of the garden city today with regard to cities which are sustainable, sociable and energy efficient.
