Smart Community Design Visualization

Standard

Starting with a barren asphalt parking lot, I love this visualization of the walkable design for a shopping district in Glenview, IL [via]. It is all about transforming the character of a place. If only more designs were presented this way, convincing people wouldn’t be so difficult.

Another example of how small (and inexpensive) changes in a Memphis neighborhood can go a long way in rejuvenating community life.
