Why design matters 

A blog post by Melissa Hege

In Miami, where car is king and pedestrian and bicyclists are a serious nuisance, Melissa uses her urban planner’s eye to share her photographs of good urban design from national and international cities—basically, wherever she's able to travel with her family in tow.  Each article features a local, national or international city neighborhood, street or park and identifies all the design parts that make it a successful place. And each concludes with a summary statement of how the examples relate to one another and lessons learned.
