About this event
The simplest way to convey the idea of a holistic framework is with a soccer ball. The ball is a holistic body and it is composed of two holistic elements, hexagons and pentagons. When you see their array laid flat you cannot imagine it makes a ball—but it does.
Urban Armature Plans™—avenues, sea level, town and country, parks and so on—each represent deep, complex systems unique to every city. but GIS analysis and a small number of classic plan rules make it easy to wield them with accuracy into a useful framework plan.
Classic Planning Urban Armature Plans deliver a working model for urban development that guides placement of infrastructure and transportation, reconnects neighborhoods, plans for sea-level rise and waterfront development, and attracts investment and economic development in alignment with urban beauty, civic pride, and sustainability.
In the process are accomplished a plan for climate change resilience and sustainable development; and a holistic vision for a sustainable future centered on human and urban interaction with the environment.
Fun Fact… New York’s, Boston’s, & Portland, Maine’s 1750 shorelines are more sustainable than those of 1850, 1950, or 2000.
