One of the interesting things I noticed on my recent visit to Calgary was the design of the houses in suburban Calgary in a particular development called McKenzie Towne. The development has about 12 designs to choose from, everything from classical to English Countryside. With such strong differences and limited design, it highlights the inauthenticity of the neighbourhood. Of course the most telling view is comparing the front of the houses to the side and back of the houses.
Surprising this area is claimed as New Urbanist. I'll go into detail about this tomorrow.
