Finally some replies on Placemakers


Here is one of mine regarding the need for car free cybercities:

It is obvious. It is self evident. And it will happen. THe only question is how. I hope planners and designers will do what I have failed to do for five decades. Create — maybe with 3d printing — models that indicate what a cybercommunity of 10K would actually look like — within a square mile. Four levels no stairs. Surfaces modular, thin, soundproof, legolike. These small cities are integral, self governing. Eco sufficient. At least half the entire space on all levels is public. This is not that dense when you consider that it is around one-seventh of NYC’s density. The desperate need now is for people to imagine this and produce models that will move things along.
