Flexible Urban Planning

mixed used train-tracks/market place...

 

Seth Dixon's insight:

I've used similar videos in my classes and students are usually quite shocked to see how a city like Bangkok, Thailand operates.  I've used this as a 'hook' for lessons of population growth, urbanization, economic development, sustainability, megacities and city planning.

I love this video. Never think that the "third world" is not more dynamic and innovative than the first!

people are not giving up with inflated price of urban land. They adapt and live with it :)

Seeing the vendors prepared for the arrival of the train is impressive. They have grown accustomed to knowing how to avoid the train and then set up shop once again, as if the train never crossed their path. It shows how the residents use their countries entire space, it is using the land to your advantage and may even speak on crowded the city is.
