How many remember the game Sim City? It was a game I first played when I was a teenager and I honestly couldn’t get enough of it. I always wanted to be on the computer watching my city grow and seeing city’s bank account grow. Then there was the time where I wasn’t patient enough and wreaked havoc on the city I was creating and utterly destroyed it.
Lately I have been giving some thought about building cities. Dream with me for a second. What if you had the opportunity to be the architect responsible for building a new city. Where would you begin? What would be important for you? What would your vision be for the city? The questions could go on and on.
I have a firm conviction that we are to play a role in the development of culture in the city which we call home. What are you doing to make a difference in your community? If you had the opportunity to build a city, how would you do it? I would love to hear your thoughts about ‘building a city.
