Dense and Spacious
Are Like Love and Marriage
National prosperity will come back
when we build cities everywhere and anywhere.
We will move to a prosperous next stage
when the same amenities are available
within a few paces of where we live and work.
It is time for conventional construction to step aside
and let 3D technology and integral design take over.
Let computers help imagine a future
beyond our consumption, sprawl economy
with its reliance on oil and cars.
The diagnosis of our present low-performing
and chancy economy is simple.
Our population is either too dense or not dense enough.
Our infrastructure was built for an economy
that won’t be here in fifty years.
We cannot solve our most enduring and invisible
social problems without a massive act of faith,
And we cannot take one step
in the direction of sanity
until we can show why it makes good sense.
Why it is in fact the golden egg
that no one has yet picked up and run with.
