Introduction by:

Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk speaks of her efforts to produce good urban designs that reduce sprawl and dependency on cars. One of her firm’s most renowned urban plans, Seaside is the embodiment of the neighborhood layout she proposes, where the town has a central focus and the housing is located within a reasonable walking distance from that locus. By addressing parking and integrating mixed use buildings, this scheme proves that it is a viable alternative to suburban subdivision plans that have been built almost exclusively in North America since World War Two. Plater-Zyberk proposes rewriting zoning codes to at least allow for alternatives like Seaside to occur, if not to prevent typical suburban tracts from being built.
