Are We Dense, Or The End of Lawns as We Know Them  (pdf of full article)

By Matt Hern

“If Vancouver is to make good on any of its ‘green’ pretensions and ambitions we have to start thinking and acting like a real city. It’s time to dispense with the faux naivite, pastoralist cliches, and paranoia about urban life. It’s time to get dense.”

“…but you can’t manufacture vitality or it has all the heart of a laugh track: density has to come incremnetally, and the process has to be driven by citizens and communities.”
