Design is a problem-solving tool
Aesthetics are subjective, but good design is not. Good design:
Can reduce crime
Increases pedestrian activity
Increases economic activity
Can clean up pollution
Can encourage exercise (art, trails, etc.)
Improves transportation & mobility
Advocates for inclusive zoning
Improves civic engagement
Provides spaces for public conversation
Contributes to income
Literally makes people healthier

In short:
Good design improves resilience.
Eco-Balancing
Decentralization
The EcoBalance method asserts that sustainability is measurable by the
degree to which human needs are balanced
with our ability to manage the environment using nature-augmenting technologies.

Space uses are determined and analyzed according to the
footprints that are necessary to supply the basic human life support
requirements of air, water, food, energy, and materials.

(I add
income
to this model, but we'll talk about that more in a minute)

State
Most of our infrastructure is centralized for efficiency; however, this creates
access problems
and
environmental stress
, which ultimately leads to
less resilience
.
Air | Water | Food | Energy
What is the smallest scale that all human needs can be met and maintained?
