cities of the future

hippy-geek, ssl, love, tux-n-beastie
I have a lot of ideas for how to improve cities imediately and move towards a goal of green, sustainable cities on a decolonozed north america. I have many reasons for wanting to move in this diection - everything from needing cities that can survive climate change to desiring a physical environment that promotes active participation of the enhabitants in the locations civics.

There are a few things that characerize the cities i envision:
* multi-level. Not just skyscapers, but multiple "street" levels. This will produce an aestically different city than were used to seeing.
* bright. The only place we've eenvisioned these types of cities is in dark cyberpunk sorts of worlds. I want sunlight and growing plants at all levels of the city.
* accessible. Seriously, this includes everything from limiting the use of stairs to ensuring that there are sufficient safe bathrooms.
* able to become self sufficient in emergencies, but keeping open trade with other cities.
* free movement of people. People should be able to travel, both within a city and between them.
* privacy. Populations will be dense, so we need to build with privacy in mind.
* safety. People study how to build safe communities. We should listen to them.
* integration. Race, class, culture. We can all learn from each other, and cities should be both diverse and integrated.
* lots of rail, elevators, and sidewalks. Planning for bikes, scateboards, wheelchairs, and segways.
* art. Things should be beautiful as well as functional.
* contained. The cities should pull in and go up. Thats how we phyhsically decolinize.
