Below is part of Dutton Architects’ proposal for the systematic transformation of the freeway system of Los Angeles. Their observations about the extent of the sprawl and freeways linking many towns are correct. Los Angeles is not one city, but an aggregate of many, and Greater LA has an area of 12,562 km² (4,850 sq. miles)
Comparing Los Angeles’ iconic freeways to the fortifications or aqueducts of old cities, Dutton Architects makes a case for reclamation and… Continue

Alicia is a great new friend of mine who I truly respect. We need to support, donate, volunteer, paint and pick up trash, etc. We need to help those less fortunate then us. It does the soul good!

Moussavi is a complex figure--not only was he a key player in the country's 1979 revolution and a prime minister in its brutal and chaotic aftermath, he's also an artist, an architect, and the head of the… Continue
Seems there's much concern expressed these days about social networks as distraction from the real world and it reminds me that this same alarm was frequent in the past over concerns about all that TV we were watching. Well, now we watch considerably less TV and do more and more social networking. So, is that a good thing?
