Ecological Urban Design: Making Rules / Breaking Rules

William R. And June Dale Prize for Excellence in Urban and Regional Planning

The 2007 Dale Prize winners for the Ecological Urban Design: Making Rules/Breaking Rules theme are advancing an ecological approach to urban design, focusing on innovations, experiments, and best practices. “Making rules” refers the emergence of new visions, design concepts, and urban design constituencies; “breaking rules” refers to reforms to traditional concepts and implementation tools. This year’s winners place this theme in the context of livability, diversity of values, and participation.
