Walls, Alleys and Dead Ends: Street Walking as Design for Livability and Community

Calenthia Dowdy

Abstract


Modernist design creates urban spaces that exclude people and neighborhood cultures.  Sustainable urban planning is built with human scale in mind. It is messy, but facilitates community.  This paper traces the move to sustainable urban planning and suggests that it parallels the Christian understanding of a God who "sits high, but looks low."
