Part Four features Tai Ziola, a young architect in Edmonton.
Her approach to the issue of suburban sprawl encompasses LEED compliant housing, renewing urban areas and creating a denser social fabric for inner-city neighborhoods. . . .Part Three presents John Brown of Calgary whose philosophy of home building is called "slow home" -- inspired by the "slow food" movement.
Another issue that Ziola finds questionable when it comes to the construction of new suburbs is the issue of inner city taxpayers subsidizing the cost of new exurban neighborhoods. “To me it doesn’t make a great deal of sense at all that taxpayers living in the core of the city are funding all of the infrastructure associated with sprawl,” she says.
Part Two shows how Jonathan Davis uses modular construction to meet urban needs.
