Organic environments are good for organic beings

Broad avenues, asphalt and wide parking lots are great for steel boxes on wheels. What human beings need, though, is smaller scales, narrow and winding alleys, trees and green grass.

Build cities for people and not cars - build compact cities!

However, when we design cities for the automobile to easily get around we get cities that you can’t walk around in. It takes ages to cross a square, an eternity to walk down a street, nothing to see or do along the way. Such cities are built not for people to live in, but for cars.

With an ultra compact city, we can put the cars where they belong Рunder ground Рand get the people up into the fresh air and sun!
