This article describes the immigration setting in the U.S. As an immigrant nation, the U.S. has long accommodated immigrant needs and the built environment reflects that. Now something new is being debated and tested by urban design theorists and professionals, that is drawing on the best aspects of the Latino or Asian use of space and urban design and welding it to the North American reality. Experts seem to agree that Latin American immigrant typically come from societies that emphasize public space such the plaza and the market. Asian immigrants come from a wider range of cultural and architectural/backgrounds, but two factors may apply. The village played a central role in their collective past, and an increasing number come from urban backgrounds, having either grown up in cities or gone to school and worked in urban settings before embarking on a new life in the U.S. INSET: In Search of the New.
