Peter Calthorpe is a founder of the Congress for the New Urbanism and a winner of the ULI J.C. Nichols Prize for Visionaries in Urban Development, and has been named one of 25 “innovators on the cutting edge” by Newsweek for his work redefining the models of urban and suburban growth in America. With his seminal book The Next American Metropolis, he defined transit-oriented development for the first time; and with his recent book Urbanism in the Age of Climate Change he showed how smart growth can play a systemic role in reducing carbon emissions while solving a broad range of social, economic, and environmental challenges.
