I believe that the most iconic cities in the world need legibility not only in their large-scale structures (skyscrapers, train stations, airports, etc.), but in their small-scale components, too (traffic lights, taxicabs, etc.). Our busy, destination-oriented lifestyles make it easy for us to ignore these subtle and redundant parts of the urban landscape, but imagine London without its numerous black cabbies and red telephone booths; or imagine New York City without its countless yellow taxicabs or the "subway announcement lady" (http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/11/14/announcing-the-subway-announcement-lady/). This blog's mission is to bring greater appreciation to the small things that subtly contribute to a heightened sense of place. View all posts by 1commuter
