A draft of something for a thing I didn't get

Our spaces and our places matter. They decide how we live and how we die. It’s easy to get stuck in one way of doing things. Like single family zoning and car dependence. Our world can seem fixed even if it’s ever changing.

What if we built our cities around choice and movement? What if we made space for simple mobility solutions like bikes and better transit? What if we built mid rise courtyard buildings for real instead of just idealizing them?

Good urban design is simple. Getting it built is hard.
