“A city is not an accident but the result of coherent visions and aims.” – Leon Krier, The Architecture of Community.
Travel opens our eyes to the many different ways communities operate around the world. From the hustle and bustle of New York City to the Italian island of Sardinia – each community has its own system and design that allows it to function and thrive.
Have you ever thought about the effects of architecture on the wellbeing of a community? This week we’re shining light on the power of design to influence towns and cities – how to build them and how to celebrate them. This Wednesday, July 18th at 2.30pm EST, join us, @AIANational, @zachandallie, @Destaddict, @noshindulge and the Passion Passport community! Make sure to tag us in your tweets with #PassionPassport.
