Creative Interests

Creating a framework for planning

There is this very difficult tradition that comes from the way we teach architecture and planning, the idea that one person can solve everything. We even have this term, the master plan, which will answer all questions, and of course we know that cities are unbelievably complex so even the idea of a master plan is really crazy. All we need is a very robust framework which allows life to take place.

To do more with less begins by exploring what we are doing now with our community resources and what we can do and how we can do things to do more, what we can do differently, and what different things we can do to increase the contribution of our community resources to our common and creative interests as a community.
