Better By Design

The default mode here at Polis is urban planning and city life in New York. But I also appreciate good design, which of course knows no city boundaries. One of the more interesting blogs about design is Inhabitat, and just a quick perusal this morning yields these little gems: rubber sidewalks made of recycled tires that are easily replaced and don't require tree removal; bamboo design; gorgeous cork floor tiles; and lots of prefab home designs. It's a great site.
