In yet another round of mainstream media adoration, Bloomberg recently spoke with and profiled Jeanne Gang. The thrust this time is Gang's Ecological Urbanism (conveyed to her by "hippie" architects), belief in organic forms, and assault on Frank Lloyd Wright's sprawl-inducing architecture. She is completely opposed to the promotion of single homes on suburban lots: "I want to turn Wright's legacy upside down. The way to be ecological is not by spreading out. It's by clustering together. It's by having a better relationship with nature in the city than you can have in a far-out suburb." And, as Bloomberg notes, her model is catching on all over the world.
