Quick Reference


American architect and planner. He founded the Regional Planning Association to promote solutions to urban overcrowding and applied Ebenezer Howard's Garden City ideas to two important developments: Sunnyside Gardens, Queens, NYC (from 1924), and Radburn, NJ (from 1926), both with Henry Wright (1878–1936). The separation of pedestrians from vehicular traffic and the large communal gardens of Radburn were influential, and Stein later promoted these in his Towards New Towns for America (1951). He advised on the creation of Chatham Village, Pittsburgh, PA (from 1930), and Baldwin Hills Village, Los Angeles, CA (from 1941). He was associated with Mumford and others in his work.
