1. Introduction

How do we improve the quality of our lives? This blog is about identifying what people love about the built environment, regardless of architectural style. By tracing how communities were structured over eons of time and with good reason,, I aim to show how to restore these time proven patterns to our new building projects.

Although the examples used come mostly from the USA and Europe, the patterns are observable in the villages of many cultures, from the orient to the occident. In addition, the important  issue of “green” technology is addressed and supported. I suggest we use these patterns because people matter.
Very soon, dwindling traditional resources and rising gas prices will force people everywhere to think “outside the box”. By applying the principles outlined here, you will be ahead of the pack.
Giving people what they like, love and makes sense will translate into all round profitability and benefit society at the same time. It is a win-win situation for all concerned in the development process, investors, developers, buyers and tenants.
