New Urbanism, and its ideals, has been cropping up a lot in conversation lately. Maybe it’s our latent interest in white picket fences and fourteen and a half children. Or maybe it’s our overt interest in what we think of as incredibly creepy town planning. Either way, it’s been on the radar, which is why we were psyched to find Michael Bierut’s latest Design Observer contribution, an essay on Celebration and why it’s not actually that creepy. An interesting look into authenticity and what that could possibly entail. In the post, we learn that Pentagram did the signage, what EPCOT stands for, and what Michael’s house looks like.
