New Urbanism isms

Goofing around on Tumblr today, I did a tag search for landscape urbanism and came up with a few interesting blogs.

Portland based blog discussing all thing urban (history, mapping, development, poverty etc.)

http://www.underpaidgenius.com/ – lots of pictures, thoughts, links, maps, infographics

A blog written by an urban planner and environmentalist about how cities can adapt to climate change.

And of course (for the cynics)  the landscape urbanism bs generator.

Oh and if you want to learn more about the new urbanism movement and their rivals the landscape urbanists, there’s a good article here.
