A Defense of the Street Grid

Picture 6

Paul Knight writes a heartfelt defense of the grid-based urban form from charges that it's boring, environmentally damaging, and pro-developer.  "A continuous grid," he writes, "can harbor everything from farms to skyscrapers. The only thing a grid plan does is subdivide territory. No town can predict what the future will bring, but if they have a grid it is easier to accommodate that future."
