In the last century, we’ve learned a lot about the death and life of great cities. We have tomes, movements, and a shared language around building these great cities. But little of this knowledge is reflected in the products and tools urban planners use to envision and create them. Instead, many of our cities’ master plans today are dreamed up on paper maps, built in excel, and possibly sit in binders on planners’ bookshelves.
