Urban metabolism is about people

My girlfriend Cornelia is very busy with helping people understand "Sustainable Amsterdam," a topic that includes transportation, urban planning, innovation and so on.

During the summer, the family behind Modacity (Vancouver, CA) came for a visit, and they definitely captured the Dutch talent for building cities around people (not cars).

Rotterdam is the Netherland's second largest city (after Amsterdam)

Eindhoven (after Delft) is the engineering capital of the Netherlands


  1. Thanks for sharing David! The third video in this five-part series, which features Amsterdam, just went live... I'm sure you're recognize some of these beautiful streetscapes! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JtSs3LbP_uY

    1. @Chris -- thanks for that. I'll promote it! Note that the Dutchies say "fietspaden" for bike paths BUT "fietsstratten" (bike streets) does seem to make more sense in terms of their USE :)
