Cities are perfect examples of the sorts of system that emerge from unplanned preferences

via www.economist.com

Should we be perpetuating the outcomes of past "unplanned preferences" by designing those preferences into our urban future, or should we be unearthing some conscious preferences, and designing for them?

Hat tip to @kristinalford for the pointer to a piece on a competition for designing cities for 2030 – the results will be interesting (though I might just miss seeing them come to fruition!).
