2020cities blog lends Swedish voice to New Urbanist community

Swedish journalist Anders Steinvall has been around the block. With experience in more than a hundred major cities around the world both personally and professionally, Steinvall has seen what works and what doesn't in urban design. A self-described urban enthusiast, he has started a new blog entitled 2020cities, which will focus primarily on urban planning issues in Stockholm and Copenhagen, with a global perspective on the future of the built environment.

Although we certainly have plenty of great examples of New Urbanist principles here in North America, Steinvall seeks to show why these two cities have sought to become "international role model[s] for modern and ecologically conscious urban development."

Steinvall also recently profiled CNU in an interview with President John Norquist in our Chicago offices.

We encourage you to take a look!
