the call for 'the design of regions' came from the opportunities that were seen after hurricane Andrew in 1993. when the slate seems erased the message of all things change also becomes an opportunity to rethink urban and regional form. in our time of climate change impacts and in particular sea level rise, flooding and drought, our challenge could not be any more critical - "...make no small plans".
