Cities concentrate everything good and bad about human nature. Cities are the most interesting places to observe, learn and create. How does a city flourish? What happens when one dies? What does it mean to build the city? How can a city be sustainable? I will be writing about these issues and more at Build the City.
I will be posting some comparative studies and data on cities around the world. I will be commenting on urban issues in Seattle, USA. Transporation, transit, land use, architecture, economics, environment and especially carbon neutrality will be disscussed.
I hope you will find something of interest, some useful data or a new perspective in these pages. Enjoy!
