Civic projects of the past provided great opportunities to build civic pride in a place. Produced as an engineering masterpiece, the Golden Gate Bridge has improved traffic efficiency for San Francisco and the accros the Bay. Its also serves as a footbridge and biking path for every city dweller.
With today’s low budget and copy-and-paste production, civic projects are reduced to provide the bare minimum need. They are lacking a sense of grandeur and beauty which are essential to building civic pride in a community. Just think about this, did anyone ever fantasize the Bay Bridge?
