Two pieces have just been published about our Urban Homogenization work. The first, by science reporter Maggie Koerth-Baker, provides a layperson's overview of the urban homogenization hypothesis and some of the patterns that initially motivated our proposal. It will be published on Sunday in the New York Times magazine, and is online here. The second piece is an article written by Laura Ogden, an anthropologist and one of our collaborators on the project. Laura's piece addresses the peculiar social and ecological geography of south Florida, and the differences between front yards and back yards. The article was written for Miami Rail, a local alternative newspaper, but you can read it on the Art Practical website here.
