Methodology

Our collection of great urbanist thinkers and practitioners is only limited by our desire to present a video interface with the public. Some of them, such as Frederick Law Olmsted, Charles Mulford Robinson, and Camillo Sitte, predate modern film and video technology. Others have lengthy online speeches captured by amateur videologists that are difficult to watch. After looking through hundreds of possible subjects and thousands of videos, we have collected the best we could find.

As we grow, we hope to provide our own original content with higher video standards learned over a long career in film and television. We will also be on the lookout for other content that meets our standards. Please let us know if you find anything that we should consider.
