  1. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/11/12/us/blighted-cities-prefer-razing-to-rebuilding.html?nl=todaysheadlines&emc=edit_th_20131112&_r=0 Absolutely fascinating article in the New York Times abut the demolition of inner city areas throughout the States. The figures for population exodus are staggering. It reminds me of Drapeau`s slum clearance programme here. . What is it now? 50 years later? And we still have great swaths of abandoned land along Rene Levesque ouest. Our urban challenges seem fairly minor compared to some.
  2. http://www.cnn.com/2010/WORLD/africa/08/21/sudan.animal.shaped.cities/index.html?hpt=C2 C'est franchement ridicule. Un des pays les plus pauvres du monde se permet de créer des villes en forme d'animaux car c'est "cute" au lieu d'investir son argent pour construire des villes qui fonctionnent. À Dubai ou en Californie je comprendrais... mais dans un des pays les plus pauvres du monde?!? Voici ce que j'ai posté dans les commentaires de l'article: "Hi, i'm an urban planner and these "animal cities" are absolutely terrible. These designs sacrifice efficiency and sustainability in favor of a "cute gimmick". You might be able to pull this off in a wealthy country like the USA, but in Sudan? Really? What an absolutely asinine idea."
