Today I came across quite an interesting topic: new urbanism (though it is an new word for good old cities) versus landscape urbanism. I didn’t think these two approaches are confronting each other, yet it seems that in US “which one is better” can be quite an issue to debate.

Its nice short overview of this discussion complemented with a list of articles.
