A Brief Introduction

Our current built environment which was once meant for people and worked to integrate with nature doesn’t seem to be designed for people or nature anymore.  Since the advent of the assembly line and the mass production of the automobile in 1913 the built environment in the United States has changed.  These changes did not happen all at once; they have occurred over time in a subtle fashion.  These changes have caused a shift in development practices that have moved away from people and nature.
