I’m going to be jotting a few notes down in Tinderbox (Ha, Mark, I no longer have to wait for the Windows version) for my up-coming romp on spatial studies in Fall writing courses, so I have to nail down the Mac keyboard and gather my thoughts on how human-designed spaces (i.e., places) shape experience and reaction.
Milwaukee, Boston, and Hartford are an interesting mash all for this. More coming.
I found Milwaukee interestingly well organized, although there was a strange emptiness to the downtown region. I was informed that the downtown is not doing all that well and that lots of concerns were moving (sprawling outward) from the center to outlying regions. But the basic design works, based around the concept of walkability.
