Just a quick post. We noticed that Google had updated their satellite imagery for downtown regina, and the plaza paving looks incredible! Check it out here – http://goo.gl/maps/n9rMD
Steve Cohlmeyer has written a book length manuscript about the underlying structure of traditional cities. The work focuses on the inherent territorial clarity of the historic way of building, and the social and economic advantages that grow from this territorial clarity.
The second part of the manuscript explores how the traditional structure was compromised by early 20th century city-building, and on how we might be able – at a topological level – to heal the effects of this compromise.
Readers are welcome to visit the Cohlmeyer Architecture Limited website cohlarch.ca to read or download the manuscript.
We have established Cohlgate.org as a forum of ideas about architecture & urbanism, and about the framework in which buildings and cities are developed. We hope you enjoy your visit and come back again.
Steve will be keynote speaker at the upcoming Chinese conference on Smart Buildings and Smart Appliances in June.
