Envisioning Urbanism

Now we are not the greatest fans of Urbanism here, we like the concept but design wise, New Urbanism tends to make every place look the same. It would be nice to see a new urbanist project without cookie cutter designs and the standard template of stores such as Barnes & Nobles, Starbucks, Chile's & Old Navy...if your project is nice enough, maybe a Trader Joe's.

With that said, the website located below is pretty cool. The site shows pictures of unappealing streets and then gradually shows how new urbanist principles could be applied to make these streets into lively places.
