Lifecycles


With the limit release that was the motor car, cities sprawled to epic proportions. Today, suburban sprawl is viewed as the big, bad monster of urban design. Those who study architecture or urban design is bound to hear about this phenomena all the time but what is the current action that is combating this vague, self-induced problem?

A more grassroots approach to all this is the Lifecycles project by Matthew Moore. Having a personal attachment to the farmland which would possibly be consumed by the metropolis, Moore set out to express the issue through a set of neat videos on the growth of produce. 


Will this stop the sprawl? That in itself is a big undertaking, but Moore's project is an effort to change the way we think about sprawling cities and an appreciation of the rural areas that hug expanding cities.

For more about the project, see the GOOD article.
