Arlands ] Archetype ] [ Arclands ] Olde Townes ]


   ArLands (Arclands), also known as new urbanism and neo-traditional developments,  are classic towns and villages of country and city.  New old-fashioned-towns are conceived by architects who design archetypal communities reminiscent of classical Currier and Ives villages. Kentlands and Lakelands in Gaithersburg, Maryland, are evocative of the all-American village that Gaithersburg itself was in the middle of the twentieth century. The nature of these communities, of course, hearken back to the villages of Europe and all the way back city-states of ancient Greece. See History.


   In celebration of the classic villages which are the inspiration for the neo-traditional designs of new urbanism, we will be looking at some of the inspirational towns here and abroad as well as at the new towns.
