This is the second part in our Psychology of Architecture series, where we explore the psychology of urban planning and architecture. Andres Duany is the best selling author of Suburban Nation: The Rise of Sprawl and the Decline of the American Dream. He has also won multiple awards for the urban planning of Seaside, Florida; Kentlands, Maryland; and Alys Beach; Florida.

Duany cofounded the Congress for the New Urbanism. Duany’s firm Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company has worked on designs for hundreds of towns and planning codes. Here Mr. Duany discusses the psychological forces that create, prevent and necessitate New Urbanism. Mr. Duany also discusses the archetypal elements of design and the effect of well planned towns on the psyche.
