city stuff

“Make a city out of objects you have on hand.”

I am crazy about cities, their layout, their patterns, their fabric. One of my favorite books on great public places and urban planning is Edmund N. Bacon’s Design of Cities. Imagine a book with illustrations you can turn around 360 degrees to understand the whys of roads, buildings, monuments, etc. Yummy! Here is an interesting profile of Bacon at work in Philadelphia. http://www.architectmagazine.com/books/edmund-bacon-biography-by-gregory-heller.aspx

Anyway, desk stuff makes for perfect city building, so time to play Urban God! Here we go!
