One of my favorite books on urban trees: Jaromir Pokorny, "Trees of Parks and Gardens", 1969. Counterintuitively, the entire book without a single image of an actual tree: only paintings of leaves/flower and fruit/nuts.

Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk on abstract town planning, a painting by numbers. Strangled by experts in traffic surgery, where each tree is merely a costly item in a municipal budget and the concept of beauty anathema, no wonder we live in what is nothing more than urban debris fields.

The richer your forest is in number of tree species, the more pest insects it harbors, up to a point. After which the more species you have, the less pest insects there are. Our urban forests need to mimic this: plant as many different species as possible. phys.org/news/2019-03-tree-div …

A single well placed tree in front of a house, even in dense urban locations, is the easiest way to increase the value of the property, and probably also that of the wellbeing of the occupants and passers-by.

"A covering of ivy acts like a 'thermal shield', protecting walls against extreme temperatures which can cause them to crack...warming up walls by an average of 15% in cold weather, cooling the surface temperature in hot weather by an average of 36%."

“A friend asked me why we no longer build cathedrals like the famous gothic constructions of old, and I said: in those times men had convictions; we modern men merely have opinions, and it takes more than an opinion to build a gothic cathedral.”

Farther north in Sweden the oldest brick structure is from the 1160s (only known from archaeological finds), but the oldest one still standing is Gumlösa kyrka, in Skåne, which was part of Denmark until 1658. It was consecrated in 1192.

The oldest still standing brick building in Scandinavia is the romanesque Sankt Bendts Kirke from 1170, on the island of Zealand in Denmark. Not that the Nordics did not know about brick, but they had ample reserves of a material more suited for their needs and climate: wood.

This is also why we plant trees as windbreaks for cities, farms, rural houses, tree plantations etc., and why ivy and other vines can help protect building from rain and wind (i.e. waves). Beautiful video. twitter.com/Rainmaker1973/stat …

There are several reasons that I do these threads but one major reason is to show that you could get high density walkable cities without tall buildings as long as you build on the human scale & that these cities can be made more attractive, resilient, denser, than modern cities. twitter.com/wrathofgnon/status …

By 1812 the city had over 40 000 people, and it was getting crowded, on par with modern Manilla. But it was still a wildly attractive city, rich and important. At this point a colony would've been good, stopping urban sprawl with a new city built a 15-20 min walk away.

A modern wooden copy was made in 1930, without the greenery it was made a little easier to see the individual garden plots, garden walls and fences, still quite large in the outlying areas of the city (but all still within the defensive walls).

The master turner Jakob Sandtner made it accurate down to individual doors and windows, even marking out where there were trees. The level of density is not despite a lack of cars and elevators, but because of it. There were still large areas devoted to food production.

In 1570 a master turner in Munich made this wooden scale model of the city. At the time the city would have had about a population of 16 000 with a density similar to that of modern Seoul. No buildings over six floors, with most at two to four floors only. Plenty of green space.
