Phoenix: You Aren't Doing It Right

Dwell magazine calls the exurb developments of Phoenix "the worst in the U.S." in this month's article on Urban Planning Done Wrong. We hesitate to even call Phoenix a city; the decentralized home turf of Allied Waste would be best described as a 400-square-mile monument to sprawl, water waste, traffic bottlenecks, and crystal meth. Urban planning sometimes seems esoteric, but Phoenix offers a real-world reminder of why we need it.
