This article from the Fordham Urban Law Journal (Volume 29, Issue 4) advocates for a new, fundamentally different plan for how cities should be coded, the Smart Code. It links urbanism and environmentalism and is strongly aligned with smart growth and sustainability. The Smart Code is offered as an alternative to the current anti-urban, conventional codes which are rigid and focus on single-use zones that separate human living space from the natural environment, as illustrated by the sprawl.

Authored by Andres Duany and Emily Talen, this paper dives into an alternative way to code a community.
