Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Wall Street Journal special section, "Future of Cities"

Yesterday, the Wall Street Journal published a special section of articles on "The Future of Cities," which is a feature section they run a couple times each year.

I don't know how many of the articles are available online.  Here are some:

-- "How Driverless Cars Are Going to Change Cities"
-- "The Big Potential of Tiny Houses
-- ">AI Aids Natural-Disaster Response"
-- "Buildings Meld With Nature
-- "Public Art Can Be Fleeting

It's worth trying to find a printed copy.

This is a diagram from the driverless car article. Charlie and I were discussing these types of diagrams in the context of what I call the "Sustainable Mobility Platform," and this is a good example, although it focuses on the impact and changes necessary to accommodate driverless cars, it's more about mobility and infrastructure as an interconnected system.
Changes in urban mobility infrastructure will come with driverless cars
