[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uSjurs4ZnlM]In 2007 I went to hear Doug Farr speak at the Municipal Art Society in NY, and have been talking about it ever since. He is a Chicago based architect who wrote a book about Sustainable Urbanism. This lecture is very similar to the one I heard all those years ago, and I am happy to be able to share this video. Everything Douglas is saying resonates with me, and I would love to see this become our normal way of life. As a child I dreamt of becoming an architect, and occasionally attend lectures on urban planning, but his speech affected my imagination the most.
