Friday 5: June 12th – 18th

Here are five of the more interesting posts I’ve read this week.

  • Tall is Beautiful: A controversial article on why environmentalists should embrace dense development and high rises, and how “NIMBYs’ feel-good environmental objections to development can be proxies for less politically correct fears.” (Mother Jones)

And, because you all are awesome readers, here’s a cool little video on creating the ideal human settlement based on the adage that “the city is too important to put it into the hands of the architects.”
