Bridges in Zurich

More Switzerland Coming Soon

Sorry I have been so slow in posting Switzerland photos… this has been a very busy time for me, and I am slipping behind a little bit. But, I do have a master-plan to start getting all those photos in order and ready to post!

Daily Photo – Bridges in Zurich

I love these old cities that are centered around a river with dozens of little bridges that cross to and fro. It vexes me why Austin (or hundreds of other cities) have not centered the whole city around the river. Maybe it has something to do with flooding or something… I’m not totally sure. But whenever cities try to start a big development around the river later in the city’s life, it seems a little bit forced. There is something very organic around these older cities and the river that feels more right than a master-planned complex.
