Okay, the two pictures above for example.....I like low, slanted, beam roofs. I'll bet everybody does. So why don't we see more of them?
I continue to believe in using the Disneyland Express (above) as a model for real urban transportation.
Maybe moderately tall buildings (above) should be designed to be scalable by the public on one side.
I've always liked the idea of letting kids (above) drive kid-size cars. I can think of a bunch of reasons why that wouldn't work, but we're free associating, remember? What if there were special roads just for kid cars? What if the only kids who could drive on them were mechanically-inclined kids who built or maintained their own funky cars? That's one way to nudge kids into engineering careers.
We need to figure out how to reward kids for being smart or handy with their hands. We need to make the idea of being skilled look like fun.
Aaaargh! Everything here is probably impractical. Well, like I said, we're free associating.
