The garden city idea was introduced in the early 1900s as a reaction against poor environments and social alienation in industrialised cities to provide both a "marriage between town and country" and the economic and social advantages inherent in urban life. In the article the idea behind the concept and several examples of how it has been realised are given. The recently completed neighbourhood Suchy Dwór in northern Poland is described with a focus on urban planning and the role of carefully designed social space.
