With pocket neighborhoods — a few dwellings gathered around a commons — I’m naming a pattern that is innate to our human nature, yet we seem to have forgotten it.  I want to bring this idea into the thought field of our culture. I want to bring it back into the minds of home-dwellers, architects, planners, developers, city officials, educators, students and community advocates. Its simplicity is its power.
