Summary The spread of suburban housing has given rise to a neo-traditionalism, an attempt to capture the look and feel of a small town in a suburban environment. This video examines the Prince Charles' project in Poundbury, England; the Seaside, Florida waterfront community; a unique housing subdivision in Markham, Ontario; and a bedroom community of Calgary, Alberta, all examples of neo-traditionalism
