David Byrne on New Urbanism, Burning Down of Houses at CNU 18

After publishing his book Bicycle Diaries, David Byrne pushed for two-wheeled transportation at CNU 18. From Fast Company: "[The book] dovetailed nicely with the New Urbanist's love affair with two wheels. In fact, if you were to choose an artifact which personifies their ideals, it would probably be the bicycle -- an elegant, people-powered, sustainable machine for living that's faster than walking (and thus able to increase the scale of daily activities) but not too fast."Byrne's presentation was quirky and entertaining.
