Terrain.org: A Journal of the Built & Natural Environments, Web site review by Kate Garsombke
Celebrating built and natural environments, like the designed community of Orenco Station, Oregon, Terrain.org offers poems and fiction about place, as well as articles and case studies on 'UnSprawl.' The pedestrian-friendly community of Orenco Station, located in Hillsboro near Portland, is one of these studies in UnSprawl. A public transit-oriented neighborhood of 1,800 homes, Orenco Station is organized around a pedestrian spine that extends from the light rail system that runs throughout the Portland metro area. Terrain.org cites the community as the most ambitious and successful to date, and says it is a closely studied example of new ideas in the battle against sprawl.
