LOW DENSITY CITIES AND IT’S HISTORY

So here we are as humanity, still debating whether climate change will force us to change our ways or if this is just a phase. I find it not only frustrating but highly annoying. We as humans have already had a taste of what nature is capable of doing to restate it’s equilibrium.

Maybe my rantings got nothing to do with this article but realizing that these amazing cities were once abandoned due to natural disasters, mostly cause by our urban footprint on nature just makes me wonder when are we going to wake up from our self centered dream.

But enough from my worries and here I leave you with this super interesting piece from The Guardian writen by Srinath Perur :
