An ending to an architectural era? I do hope that this speed bump we’ve bottomed out on helps spur on a more focused attention. Personally, I think the society and the built environment would be much better off if a majority of us focused on the overlooked meat of what is built by simply making better architecture of the everyday - better boxes.
My commute is one of seeing a city while moving along its edge - not as arriving to the city, or walking away - but riding the border between the chaos and the calm. The river's revival is well chronicled and the primary reason for its success is what has been developed along its edges.
