Re: Re: Government-by-numbers
Closer to Boston than Berlin. Coming soon the great suburban expansion west with a new stadium surrounded by car parking (abbotstown), strip malls and outer suburban networks. The spatial strategy is completely in tatters. Living next to your family is one ting but if you are not in a position to contribute to the local economy and cultural life of that environment (because you are absent) then there is not much point. After the Gold rush hundreds of towns were abandoned. The reason why the US has such a responsive economy is due to the mobility of the workforce that follow the opportunities rather than stay regardless in the place they were born and raised. The desire for this mobility and responsiveness runs counter to the crossroads model that we think will emerge as a consequence of the pollination of the countryside with bungalows.
