The calamity of millions of displaced people has generated hardly a murmur from city planners and urbanists. Stop-gap measures seem doomed to turn immigrant populations into communities of fury, isolation and despair. The town- building heritage that underlies New Urbanism provides abundant models for the opposite: assimilation, opportunity and hope. It is time we became advocates for our own history. Join Mithun Partner Daniel Solomon for Place and the Displaced at the Congress of New Urbanism’s annual conference, CNU 24.
