Date

6-1970

Description

Drawing influence from England’s Garden Cities, the planners of Radburn separated streets for motor vehicles from pedestrian routes. To encourage pedestrian traffic, and to create harmony between residents and nature, the rear of the houses face the streets while the fronts face walkways and public parks.
