I just ran across an incredibly interesting feature via the New York Times. It’s a short expose on Scenic America, an organization that aims to preserve visual character and fight visual pollution in American cities. Something about the idea of older-ish men doubling as aesthetic enforcing vigilantes (okay, vigilante might be a bit strong, but I can dream right?) is pretty amazing. Maybe, just maybe, America has a chance against the visual monotony, blandness, and uniformity that seems to be slowly devouring suburb after suburb. I’m not holding my breath. More info and explanation, below.
