Now tell me this place doesn't look like a cool place to live. It's a concept idea for an entirely self-sufficient, green city for over 75,000 people. The design, by MVRDV, recently won the Gwanggyo City Centre Competition.
Construction for the environmentally-friendly metropolis could begin as early as 2011 in an area just south of Seoul, Korea
Now, if they don't call it "The Emerald City," I am going to be really disappointed.
I started this blog mostly because of my friend Allie. She's on her way to a masters in Journalism, and she got assigned to write a blog for one of her classes. When she told me about it, I thought "wow, good idea."
You see, I love to write, but as a scientist very little of my day-to-day writing is interesting or legible to anyone who isn't a scientist. So this lets me write in a way that is actually fun to read - I know, novel.
Anyhow, if you want to why it's called "Observations of a Nerd," read this.
