What made us take an overland journey from Europe to Kathmandu? For many of us it was travel to the unknown, an adventure, plus an escape from conformity. It could be said it was the fore runner of the backpacker travel movement now a rite of passage for young people today. We in fact were following Alexander the Great, Genghis Khan, Monguls and Mughal invaders, Muslim Arab armies, as well as trading caravans which gave some of our route the romantic name of the Silk Road.< Less

First Suburbs By Blake Belanger & Jason Brody

Kansas State University landscape architecture students have spent the summer of 2010 addressing these dilemmas through two projects: the Build a Better Burb design competition in Long Island, New York and proposals developed in partnership with five cities in the Kansas City First Suburbs Coalition. The projects encapsulated in this book cover a range of ideas. Some are theoretical while others are concrete. Some are prototypes; others idiosyncratic. While they all address community-level concerns, many projects also operate at larger or smaller scales. Each proposal addresses multiple dilemmas facing First Suburbs, but no single proposal claims to solve them all. The projects do not offer a panacea, taken individually or as a whole: rather they take a step in the right direction.< Less
