Thinking About New Orleans


Today’s gonna be a short day; we’re up in Boston for a GSD review with none other than our drinking buddy/favorite THINKer Fred Schwartz, so we’re going to have to run. Internets in Massachussets aren’t quite as reliable as the ones in our busted walkup. But, because the studio is all about the rebuilding of New Orleans, we thought we’d share this fairly recent Metropolis story, “Rebuilding New Orleans: Twenty Big Ideas and a Postscript.” Which includes ideas like “use both sides of the river” and “build a broadband and wireless city” and “design for people to live where they work” and, our favorite, “bring back the music.”

There’s nothing like the joy of a studio takedown. We’ll try and fill back in later but we might just be rocking way. too. hard.
