Blog 1: Energy, Flow and Transformation
Hmm, energy, flow and transformation through the city... Well the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of energy would have to be the people of the city. Everyone always seems to be in a rush to get somewhere, or maybe I naturally gravitate towards fast walkers, I don't know. People just seem to be all hyped up about everything... but I guess the people who take it slow are less noticeable in that respect.
When I think of flow, I think of the Mississippi River. It brings an amazing aspect of nature to an extremely urban area, and I think it is very important that we can maintain some connection with nature, especially in the middle of such a large metropolis. Simple as that.
Finally, transformation actually brings to mind the subject of architecture. Walking or driving through the city, the extreme diversity of buildings and culture just seem to meld or transform into each other, but not in a crap way, in a good way. In a way that can leave you proud and awed at what the people before you created individually, yet managed to make connect with the surrounding area. I supposed this could go along with the idea of flow also.
Weeeeell that's all I've got for this blog! I hope it doesn't suck.
