Swine Flu and the City

There’s a lot to process here, but it’s worth it: BLDGBLOG’s post about disease and urban planning is the most interesting thing you’ll read all day.

The roots of modernism in sanatorium design. Office space built around the transmission properties of the common cold. Settlers of Catan: Outbreak Edition. Doctors holding seminars in the sewers of Paris.

Like a little virus in its own right, this post will take up residence in your brain. It’s made all the more satisfying for seeing its roots — early symptoms — over on @bldgblog.

This Is How a Public Intellectual Works TodayTM.
