Using urban design to make our lives more enjoyable and create wealth

This site is for all those interested in the making of cities and towns, and especially the lives of the humans that inhabit them. Kevin Klinkenberg is an architect and urban designer who's practiced from coast-to-coast. 

But people love modern architecture

or they just need to be educated to like it - that's what we learned in architecture school.

Look, I'm sure this building needed updating decades ago. But it's hard to imagine anyone but a certain percentage of architects who really thought this was an improvement.

And not to put to small a point on it - which one is better to walk along? Which one speaks of the possibility of human beings?
