- "With its focus on urban design, the Charter Awards are dramatically different from most architecture awards. Most awards assess buildings in a vacuum, neglecting the context of the surrounding environs. The Charter Awards look at how plans and projects respond to and integrate with their environment and, consequently, how they improve the human experience of blocks, neighborhoods, and regions"--Publisher's Web site, viewed July 23, 2004.
- "The purpose of the Charter awards is to recognize distinguished design achievements that fulfill the principles of the Charter
of the New Urbanism"--T.p. verso.
