Congress for the New Urbanism
The organization that has led the campaign to change the way we think about, plan and build cities and towns.

University of Virginia School of Architecture
The University of Virginia is home to one ofAmerica’s greatest architectural landmarks, Thomas Jefferson’sAcademicalVillage. This poignant space gave formal definition to the value of education in a young democratic nation. Today, though that nation has evolved, it is still striving to reach those early ambitions; the architecture defines that hopeful struggle. The intersection between the values of the public versus those of the private realm is evident here. This public space is dynamic and complex, as the culture itself, and its legacy is a tribute to the power of great design. At theSchool ofArchitecture at theUniversity ofVirginia we are poised to continue this legacy in our own time and in our own language.
