Robert Simon, a visionary American city planner, believed that creating community was more important then building buildings. He envisioned 'another way of living' in the suburbs, combining the best of the city with the best of the country. In 1964, he developed the New Town of Reston, VA where he made his utopian vision a reality.
Reston became an international sensation who inspired new trends in suburban development, mixing residential and commercial uses and creating civic open spaces to promote community.
