The Celebration Foundation New Urbanism Committee

recently hosted

 

‘A Conversation with Michael Eisner and Peter Rummell –

Celebration, FL – Building the Dream’

 

in partnership with Florida Hospital Celebration Health.

 

We were pleased to share this video retrospective of the true ‘roots’ of the town that was shown at this event.

New Urbanism is the building of complete communities to create diverse, walkable, compact, and vibrant places to live, learn, work, and play.They are designed to help people make friends and enjoy a unique sense of place. Celebration is a traditional American town built anew. In the words of its master architect and planner Robert A. M. Stern, Celebration was “to recapture the idea of the traditional town, traditional in spirit but modern in terms of what we know about how people live.”
