Hello. First post here on Cyburbia.
Just curious if any fellow travelers (Who look at city design) find it interesting how relatively small Brazilian cities (Like around a couple of hundred thousand) tend to be built with a high concentration of high/mid rise buildings....as opposed to sprawled out.
I guess the city that makes me think of this most is Florianopolis. At <300k in the main city it sure looks bigger than that. A quick tour in the surrounding area would reveal that there is a lot of open undeveloped space though. Very nice. So the "ugliness" gets concentrated.
