    Encyclopedia article about New Urbanism. New Urbanism is a late-twentieth-century architectural and urban design movement that has influenced the landscapes of cities and towns in Georgia. New Urbanism endeavors to guide the development of the built environment at all scales, from the individual building to the region. Counter to decades of suburban sprawl and pervasive automobile-oriented design, New Urbanist practice seeks to restore a balance between cities and suburban development through an understanding of the best traditions of urbanism.
