“The largest sector of infrastructure needing radical reformulation is the one dealing with logistics and its far-reaching presence in all aspects of life. It might turn out that human habitat has to be realigned with the logistical grids serving it. That requires urban ribbons of modest width incorporating parallel roads, cycling pathways, public transit services, and stations for local, regional, continental trains.Transversal to the urban ribbon, the servo-systems complete the logistical grid.”[from the opening paragraph of What If? Quaderno 14: Lean Linear Arterial City]
This updated (from Quaderno 9) edition of Lean Linear City, edited by Lissa McCullough, features entirely new graphics by Youngsoo Kim and few other enhanced renderings by Adam Nordfors and Tomiaki Tamura.
