Rough Theory

Theory In The Rough

Jane Jacobs (4 May 1916 – 25 April 2006)

I just saw in the The New York Times that Jane Jacobs has passed away. I’m unfortunately in the middle of writing a conference piece, and can’t write an adequate retrospective reflection on her work now. The New York Times article is available here (free registration required).

Update: other retrospectives on Jacobs (including an excellent one from 2 blowhards written before her death) can be found at:
