Every week, I get an email newsletter from Design Within Reach, a great modern furniture catalog. Today, the feature story was about cities made for walking (and biking). Urban design is a subject that always interests me. In this case, they used the nearby South Carolina city of Charleston as an example, so I felt further compelled to share the newsletter.
I especially like this quote that they highlighted from the late, great author and architectural critic Lewis Mumford. “Forget the damned motor car and build the cities for lovers and friends.”
