The Future of Cities

I forgot to link to Oscar Boyson’s video in this week’s What I saw this week post. Sorry about that. So now he gets his very own post.

Oscar Boyson on Ev’s blog:

Jane Jacobs said that “cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody.” I’ve worked on videos for companies, for the guy in the penthouse, for nobody in particular, in the developing world, with rich people and poor people, for me, for my friends, and for artists. I’m so thankful for everybody who allowed me to make this film the way we did, and I hope the parallels between filmmaking and city building — where the stakes are so much higher — aren’t lost on anyone trying to make their city a better place. We should all be involved. The most sustainable future is a future that includes us all.

Great video. See also, Kottke.
