This paper discusses the City Beautiful and New Urbanism movements within a global context, focusing on Australia and Washington D.C. in the United States. The movements are contextualized within their respective historical moments and the urban planning desires for each. The paper then relates them to each other in terms of the interpretation that while each had good ideas, their practical implementation have not necessarily gone as planned.

From the Paper:

"The City Beautiful movement began around the turn of the twentieth century in several global locations including Europe, the United States, and Australia. The basic principles of the movement called for city planning methods that would combine both beauty and utility in public spaces, to make some of the major cities in each of these locations more functional and more appealing to its citizens. New Urbanism is a contemporary notion of city planning that focuses not only on functionality and beauty, but on community sustainability and environmental preservation as well."
