For the past 10 years, designers have had to figure out how to code neighborhoods for people - reflecting accelerated changes for the way they actually live, the way they want to use space, and the way places are actually supposed to function. Phil Kim of JERDE discusses Predictive Places and the process of trying to get much closer to human centered design and, even in large scale projects, try to reflect those kinds of changes.
