    Lasner is writing on a monograph entitled “Community Urbanism: The Bay Area Counterculture and the Reimagining of U.S. Housing and Neighborhoods, 1940-1990,” that reexamines postwar urbanism, locating its avant garde not in the Northeast or in Europe but in Northern California, where designers advanced progressive social, economic, and environmental agendas through innovative housing solutions that echoed the New Deal and anticipated the New Urbanism.
