catalog of uninteresting projects

June 16, 2009

Another way of deciding what to do might be to decide what not to do.  Hence a catalog of uninteresting projects, fictional infrastructures that fail to advance the practice of urbanism.  These projects aren’t necessarily bad ideas, but hopefully thinking about what is uninteresting will help us discover what is interesting.

1. A new urbanist transit system

2. High-speed rail stations
A common theme between one and two: spoke and hub-type interventions.  Much more interesting than high-speed rail stations, for instance, might be high-speed rail factories.
