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. 

Videos about place

Gracen Johnson has been creating some beautifully-done short videos about place and walkability. Her latest, Prosperity means Places, is a great example. Watch until the end as the last minute-ish is the best (in my opinion) with some specific, simple ideas. I enjoy how she connects two things that are repeated on this site often: human happiness and wealth creation.
