Given the large amount of resources involved, contemporary urban development requires increasingly more integrated plans and actions aiming to relate to one another all components and functions of urban systems, so as to create synergies between all policies, programmes and projects. Integrated urban planning has a special significance in relation to the planned communities, where such an integration and the creation of a so-called “all-inclusive urban environment” are viewed from the inception of the new settlements. Besides the discussion of the theoretical-conceptual framework which provides the foundation for practical actions, this paper proposes a spotlight on Reston, VA, the first modern planned community in the United States after World War II. The examination of the defining features of this community is based on both available literature and the field trips to Reston and interactions with key members of this community, including Robert Simon, its founder.
