Seaside, The City Of Ideas

Seaside, a village in northwest Florida has been at the forefront of reshaping what a city could be. It was built from scratch 30 years ago and has been watched under a microscope by urban enthusiasts ever since.

History has been good to Seaside. It was built to be resilient and sustainable from the start and has flourished. It was a place where new ideas were questioned, but now are the norm. Frankly, it gives a lot of hope that it can still be done even through we’ve throw out a bunch of conventional wisdom.

This video, from the series American Makeover features the elements of Seaside that seem so out of the ordinary, but still looks and functions very traditionally. I really enjoyed it, so I thought I’d share it here.
