Jason, I mentioned earlier that Hamilton needs to develop a "Design Centric" language in Hamilton to enable new solutions and approaches to grow from our many community interactions.

Below are some examples of this kind of thinking in the product and interface design fields, but which can very easily be stretched to the field of architecture and planning and urban geography.

Amir Khella has developed an amazing set of slides on Design Thinking... (www.slideshare.net/akhella/design-thinking-for-startups-1971227 ) - which may help understand what I am alluding to.

Chris Bernard has also very powerfully addressed this issue at: www.slideshare.net/chrisbernard/design-thinking-dallas

I wanted to talk at length about 'affordability' and "affordable housing" -- But instead I am going to leave you with pointer towards James J. Gibson, "Affordance" and "Ecological Psychology" with a hope that you can connect the dots!
