RURAL-URBAN TRANSECT:  
New Urbanist Andrés Duany created the rural-to-urban transect as a model of urban planning. The transect defines a series of zones that evolve from sparse rural farmhouses to the dense urban core. Each zone contains a similar transition from the edge to the center of a neighborhood. The transect is an important part of the New Urbanism and Smart Growth movements.
Transect planning can be seen as a contrast to the single land-use pattern favored by modern city zoning and suburban development. In these patterns, large areas are dedicated to a single purpose, such as housing, offices, shopping, and they can only be accessed via major roads. The transect, by contrast, involves mixed-use development and therefore decreases the necessity for long-distance travel by any means.

Very useful. If only it looked so awesome in real life!

As Art Production Fund Artist-in-Residence, Candy Chang lived in the The Cosmopolitan and turned its P3 Studio gallery into a contemplative experiment around anonymity, vulnerability, and understanding in the heart of the Las Vegas strip. Visitors were invited to submit their confessions on wooden plaques in the privacy of confession booths. She hung the anonymous plaques on the gallery walls so they gathered over time like a Shinto Shrine prayer wall. She projected and painted select responses on large canvases. The space featured an original soundtrack by Oliver Blank.
