Almost every city has the same thing in common. That is the love/hate relationship with water… specifically storm water. We all love water because it is such a precious resource that we are dependent upon.
My fear is that technology and innovation have almost made our civilization regress at an inverse relationship to innovation. Don’t misinterpret my statement. I love technology as much as the next person, just ask my iPad sitting next to me. We cannot take the word of the specialists as seriously as we once could.
The wood paving block is a forgotten material in modern day design and construction. The material was foreign to me prior to a ‘Skinny Streets’ tour that I was on at the 2007 Congress for the New Urbanism conference in Philadelphia.
