The Urban Omnibus, published by the Architectural League of New York, has been collecting good “citymaking” ideas since 2009. Earlier this year, the publication assembled 50 of them into a special Ideas For A New City feature, and commissioned eight rather lovely posters to highlight some favourites (you can buy those here). Co.Exist detailed 8 of the highlights, illustrations of which are below.
