Radburn, New Jersey (1929): “A town for the motor age,” designed by the architects Clarence Stein and Henry Wright and the landscape architect Marjorie Sewell Cautley. Radburn is best known for its separation of vehicular and pedestrian traffic. The main features in its design are the two main residential superblocks, each comprised of a network of cul-de-sacs surrounding a large semi-public outdoor space, which allow people to walk to school, a rec center, or a commercial center without crossing streets.

The intent behind researching this precedent was to look at ways of developing “walkability” in Paradise.
