I’m a big fan of the TED Talks series and wanted to post an oldie but goodie. This Talk was given by James Kunstler back in 2004 and still rings true almost a decade later. The video is entitled How Bad Architecture Wrecked Cities.
I imagine that was just the generic title for the video, but what has wrecked cities is certainly more than just architecture. There are a lot of things of what he points out and how he has captured it really seems so obvious as to why our cities are failing to meet our needs.
Hopefully you’ll see things a little differently and enjoy it as much as I did. Once your done I’ve got one more video and favor to ask… Please check out my Go Urban, Young Man project on Indiegogo.com. Contribute, share, and help me take one small step towards repairing a broken piece of Peoria!
