Neat and centered New Urbanist villages seem a long way from the strip and lists, and our non-concentric, non-hierarchical, virtual, discontinuous, repeated, contested, (commodified and themed) places. New Urbanist developments look like they reject all that is characteristic of other new places.

But do not confuse architectural style with the social grammar of a place. The strips and are just outside the neat villages. The lists and the non-concentric and the virtual penetrate the village. They may not be visible in the architecture but they are there in grammar and expectations and patterns of life and work.
