Jane Jacobs 1916-2006

I was sad to learn about the death of Jane Jacobs last week.

Her books and approach were (and continue to be) significant influences on me, particularly when I seek to understand how communities work. What damage can be done by (often well-meaning) politicians, developers, financiers and industrialists.

How to keep remembering the humanity that is, and should remain, at the heart of everything we do.

Thank you Jane Jacobs.
