Lets design a garden city

  1. 1. Let’s Design a Garden City
  2. 2. ‘The advantages of the most energetic and active town life, with all the beauty and delight of the country, may be secured in perfect combination’ Ebenezer Howard, To-Morrow: A Peaceful Path to Real Reform, 1898
  3. 3. Garden Cities economically independent cities with short commute times and the preservation of the countryside. Garden Suburbs built on the outskirts of large cities with no sections of industry. Dependent on reliable transport allowing workers to commute into the city.
  4. 4. ‘cities must import resources, a process also known as conquest, colonialism, and these days, the global economy' - Derrick Jensen, Endgame
  5. 5. ‘Cities take… 2% of the Earth’s surface but use at least 80% of all energy. If we cannot make our cities more sustainable they could easily become our coffins rather than our ark’ – Leo Hollis, Cities are Good for You; The Genius of the Metropolis
