Think It, Build It!
Peter de Jager
What happens when a fantastical idea in science fiction leaps from the page and sets up shop in the real world? That’s a “What if?” question we don’t ask often enough; and, when we do, we rarely arrive at all the possible answers – never mind the right answers. Predicting the impact of a technological advance is difficult, if not simply impossible.
Consider the consequences of introducing antibiotics into medical practice. They certainly achieved the first goal of significantly reducing mortality due to infections. Yet, I’m not aware of any predictions about how they, and evolution, would interact and result in superbugs (a not insignificant result).
If you’re going to attract the talent, investment and entrepreneurs to create new, good jobs in the fast-paced business climate of today, the quality of the public realm and the urban experience are important factors. So are the community’s commitments to the environment, greening the city, energy efficiency, and providing lovely urban places and spaces. – Gord Hume, author, Places and Spaces.

Places and Spaces (Gord Hume) Item 0056
How municipalities design their public realm strongly influences their economy and culture.
There is an instinctual desire by people for beauty and peace in their surroundings.
Places and spaces help to shape the civility of cities and the people in them.
These are just some of the provocative themes in Gord Hume’s latest municipal masterpiece, Places and Spaces. How cities compete in the global economy is affected by their physical realm and local planning decisions.
Through in-depth interviews with leading experts around the world, Gord deftly weaves a compelling blueprint for livable, prosperous and sustainable cities. Places and Spaces is a sharply-conceived analysis of how the public and private realms intersect – and often collide.
