“Earth From Above” is the result of the aerial photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s five-year airborne odyssey across six continents. It’s a spectacular presentation of large scale photographs of astonishing natural landscapes and this one of one of the suburbs of Copenhagen, Denmark
Imagine if the suburbs of the United States were to be built in this fashion rather than the sprawling, haphazard way that they occur here. Note that each house has ‘greenery’ at its back and a common circle in the center for parking, and each has its ‘wedge’ of the circle with privacy fences/shrubbery between.
I suppose that this is what one does when living in a country with limited land space. Perhaps we ought to use this model before we denude more woodlands and pave over more farm fields.
