Reimagining Infrastructure

10 September 2013

Once a point of national pride and identity, America’s infrastructure is showing its age. Even in their heyday, the big infrastructure projects of the past were not always mindful of the communities in which they were built, nor did they reflect or respect the realities of life on a finite planet.

But this is a finite planet, and many communities are imagining new systems and structures for transportation, food, water, waste, energy, and information. In the process, they’re creating new, more beautiful, more resilient public works.

With its July/August 2013 issue, Orion introduces Reimagining Infrastructure, a series of twelve feature articles over two years exploring infrastructure solutions for the next generation.
