What would it mean to live in cities where we care about and feel connected to oceans? Blue Urbanism challenges us to imagine how terrestrial urbanites can also be understood to be citizens of the sea, citizens and inhabitants of the blue world, and as such care for and steward over this most amazing of Earth’s realms.
- Timothy Beatley
Blue Urbanism challenges us to imagine how cities can include the ocean in their planning and the importance of preserving what makes up most of the planet. I wanted to highlight this idea through my photos and design layout; Creating a mock-up of Chapters 1, 5, & 8 from Timothy Beatley’s Blue Urbanism, I chose to create a book layout that not only expressed what Blue Urbanism is—but also emphasized the richness of the sea.
