Boulevard of Broken Dreams

The disenchantment of suburbia, of McMansions, or mass consumptions for all of us here is no big mystery, but for many they still longingly cling to this view.  I know of a few neighborhoods around Charlotte that have stopped building mid-stream.  Rio Vista, California is no exception, in fact, it is an extreme.  With the set staged to roll out massive swaths of tract homes, builders folded left and right, leaving it all behind in a wake of bankruptcy.  I can’t think of a better example of why the old ways are broken, why we must rethink our housing and how Tiny Houses might fit into all that.  The photos are pretty astonishing.
