Terra-forming Street-shapes

on
The wonderful thing about the upcoming civil debates over the future shape of downtown is that everybody will have beautiful visionary ideas. The horrible thing is that, in the end, because of the nature of compromise, no one will get the downtown that they want. It is like Frankenstein, (if you have not seen Roger […] [Read More]

Rising Up – the long way home

on
Having spent years of my life, if not decades, working in recording studios, sitting in front of massive control panels and staring at computer screens, I like to get out-and-about much more these days.

on

The Village District – as an idea

on
It’s the ultimate “scary board” of inquisition that kind of goes against Westport’s easy going casual/ creative nature. The confab agglomerations by the river were built up over time, during different periods. We have the Gothic Empire Westport Bank and Trust building(beautifully restored by David Waldman).
