a research compendium

Welcome to the home page of our research. Our work examines the relationships (and sometimes the contradictions) between the theory planners have about what contributes to designing and building good communities and what actually results from the practice of developing our communities.

You'll find links here to our current and past projects with summaries of our findings, early results, and examples of student research. Although copyright regulations prevent us from posting copies of most of the scholarly publications from the work, conference presentations and early drafts are here as working papers when possible.

We hope you find the information useful, and welcome any comments.
