About Urbanismo

Begun in 2015, URB/AN/ISM/O is intended to serve as a free and open resource to further the understanding of urban form, history, and development as it relates to city planning initiatives in general, and the Greater New Haven region in south-central Connecticut in particular. As such, articles primarily focus on analyzing development trends, works of architecture, and the social and spatial organization of the City of New Haven and its environs. Topics also include discussions of urban planning issues in other American and European cities, in addition to films. Far from a comprehensive or authoritative guide, this resource is a work-in-progress that encourages commentary and feedback so it can improve and evolve.
