The Falls Church News-Press reported that members of the Falls Church city council met successfully with representatives of Duany, Plater-Zyberk, & Co., Michael Watkins and Cory Babb (M.Arch.’06), to consider the installation of a Katrina Cottage there in parallel with an initiative sponsored by USA Weekend.  The News-Press reports (August 31):

[USA Weekend] wants to demonstrate the home in Falls Church to the public throughout the greater Washington, D.C., metro area and culminate the effort on October 28, on “Make a Difference Day,” when it will donate the home to a family in this area that has relocated from the Gulf Coast in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

The New Urban News (Jan./Feb.2006) stated in “New Urbanism makes inroads; still out of academic mainstream”: “Other design schools where at least some members of the faculty are receptive to New Urbanism include the Carnegie Mellon University, Judson College, University of Minnesota, and University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.”  [Accessed 12.30’10 at http://newurbannetwork.com/article/new-urbanism-makes-inroads-still-out-academic-mainstream].

Traditional architecture and urbanism at JU was recognized by I.N.T.B.A.U. and by Stephen Mouzon, Original Green.
