I wonder what happened to all those great designs submitted to the Reburbia competition a couple years ago. We sure could use some innovative urban planning here in the U.S.!
Recently I asked myself why we have so much sprawl, and the question lead me to explore census reports and migration patterns across the country. By looking at the history of how we grew, I think we can better plan for the future.
