Over the years, we've done several interviews with guests about how the physical structure of neighborhoods encourages the relational reality of community (e.g., Richard Moe, Jeff Speck, Eric Jacobsen, Lilian Calles Barger, etc.). We also produced an audio anthology called "Place, Community, and Memory" (available for purchase as an MP3 download here). Novelist Orson Scott Card has recently commented on the importance of thinking in tangible ways about how communities work in a column called "Walking Neighborhoods," a sequel to a column called "Life without Cars."
