parkings January 07, 2012
“For 5000 years, we built cities around people, and they worked well. For 50 years we’ve built them around the parking lot—a ridiculous use of land, of money, and an intrusion into the intimacy of human scale. Now we’ve painted ourselves into a corner. The saving grace is that the first 5000 years might come back again.”
From an excellent article on urban planning. Food for thought for anyone living in North America, or in any of the car/parking dictated spaces on earth. Amen, Mr Cole.
