My Op-Ed on the Paolo Soleri Amphitheater

One of the great things about a blog is it can be a testing ground for new ideas or work. My indignation over the razing of the Paolo Soleri Amphitheater inspired me to put together the video of the amphitheater and write a post about it, The Unquantifiablity of a Place, Part 1. Participating in the Save Our Soleri (SOS) page on Facebook further motivated me to expand the post into an op-ed, which Planetizen, a web site dedicated to all things urban planning, ran yesterday.

Thanks to Tim Halbur for running it and including the video.
