More Rockville Pike

Rockville Pike indeed. There was recently a charette for the Pike. GreaterGreaterWashington did a nice piece highlighting it. Not only did this charette embrace the grid idea that I was pontifficating, it also appears to be embracing innovative storm drainage techniques. I don't know much about water runoff engineering, but this seems really cool to me. I understand that it's cheaper than conventional storm runoff, and it makes plant life a functional part of a streetscape.

I hope one day I have the time to attend these sorts of things. Perhaps after I move and I'm spending less of my life in the car...
