“The objective of my Tumblr isn’t to produce beautiful images – as I don’t think good cities are always beautiful. My objective is to inventory the built form around me that seems to “work”. By “work,” I do not mean urban areas that follow textbook urban design rules. To me, an urban environment that “works” is one that is unique and diverse, one that tells a story, one that is contributing to the experience of place.”
— Me, summarizing the approach I take to this Tumblr, from this piece I recently wrote about how this blog has helped me refine what I value as an urban planner.
