Talking Point (#12) Re:Vison

Re:Vision is a diverse group of people focused on changing the urban landscape by reimagining all the components that make up a city block. From energy to transportation to commerce to community, we believe that by finding innovative, healthy and sustainable ideas to help revitalize one urban block, we can create a blueprint for better cities everywhere.

It runs international competitions under the themes of -
Re:Volt (energy)
Re:Route (transport)
Re: Store (economy)
Re:Connect (community)
Re:Construct (building)
Re:Vision (putting it all together)

There can be many parallel ideas and themes in Re:Vision and PARK(ing) Day and as Stacey Frost (Founder, Archiventure and Re:Vision) says -
"WHAT IF we came together and pooled our ideas, energy and resources to create a different kind of urban experience? ...We are all creators. I challenge you to ask yourself what urban experience you truly want. BE BOLD. THINK BIG. It’s all there already, waiting to be put into action."
