Longmont Colorado

I've been working with my Townscape compadres and Tim Baldwin of Steer Davies Gleave on a transit oriented development plan for Longmont, Colorado.  My role has been collaborating on the urban village concepts, generating freehand concept maps and sketches on site and in the studio.  It's a fast and efficient way to work.  Tim created this little video in which he cleverly uses my urban village concept maps in "pieces" to tell the story of how the project could evolve over time.  The video ends with a village center concept sketch I made from a Google Earth street view.  Enjoy!
