    Post Urban Planning and architectural resources

    I have a dream of eventually designing a city based on some key design principles laid out in carfree cities, an urban pathfinder utopia attempt.

    so here is a place for resources for that idea and others are welcome to raid these resources as I explore and experiment.

    so to start with here is a link http://www.carfree.com

    once a week an example city map

    Here is an existing city- Damascus
    Ancient City of Damascus - UNESCO World Heritage Centre
    Damascus Map

    the layers of roads influencing the layers above with buildings of so many ages, 5500 years of continuous settlement with evidence of a village even in 9000 BCE great variety in street line variety. Great texture varieties- plantings in urban orchards and parks, dry yards, etc...satellite view is rich. and I wish all its inhabitants peace and safety.
    Damascus Map - Interactive Map of Damascus - you will need to zoom in but just look at the patterns of self organizing settlements!

    for now you will have to be content to notice that we are mostly making nolli maps.

    or if you want some cartographic television BBC Two - The Planners - Episode guide

    BBC News - Audio slideshow: Mapping Africa
    the history of mapping africa which reveals as much about cartographic history as it does of african history.

    If you don't mind someone else adding a link...

    I found someone talking about:

    http://phantomcity.org/#

    in my newsfeed the other day. It looks like they collected old/unused plans/ideas for different parts of Chicago, SF and NYC. Interesting stuff!
