More Imagineering

Sponsored by Sprint, Newsweek has an interactive module that examines the future designs of three American cities if cost, history, aesthetic and culture were no object. New York, Los Angeles and, you guessed it: New Orleans!

There are a few good ideas in there, but the monorail thing just won't go away.

I just couldn't watch too much of it. I can't abide taking the one truly asthetically pleasing American city and filling it full of garish Legos. I saw nothing that would actually build off of the built space already present

"if cost, history, aesthetic and culture were no object."

And, obviously, taste.

Well, the concept behind the SEEDs has some merit. I wouldn't mind seeing a more realistic proposal for those.

But did any of you notice that New Orleans is expected, by Mathes Brierre, to have a Major League Baseball team sometime in the development horizon? And the stadium is going in across Poydras from the Superdome?

I wonder what they'd call that ill fated franchise?

That monorail idea really sets you off, doesn't it, Jeffrey?
