What urban type are you?
Here’s an abridged quiz to ‘discover your true urban style’, found on the back cover of a highly acclaimed book on downtown life: Get Urban! The Complete Guide to City Living by Kyle Ezell, who’s also a speaker (I hope you appreciate the spontaneous plug Kyle).
If you have Post-Industrial style, you…
– Find beauty in hard-core, edgy urban environments.
– Are drawn to basic building materials such as steel, glass and concrete.
– Insist on stunning downtown skyline views.
If you have Garden style, you…
– Enjoy small backyards where birds sing and butterflies dance.
– Regard front porches full of hanging baskets as highly desirable.
– Have historic home revitalization on your list of “must dos.”
If you have Eclectic style, you…
– Are highly expressive, open to new ideas, and want to be stimulated as you step out the front door.
– Insist upon cultural, social, and architectural diversity in your surroundings.
– Consider yourself, your friends, and your philosophies as highly creative.
If you have Blank Canvas style, you…
– Are intrigued when analyzing “before and after” building photos.
– Do not consider an empty structure to be empty, just another possibility.
– Consider yourself a hard-core “urban activist.”
What type are you? Or are you ‘unclassified’? Speak your mind below…
I am a “Garden Style” person. I work in a home office with large windows on three sides, next to a pond and waterfall, with a deck next to the pond and another “treehouse deck” above my office that’s a perfect place to watch Florida’s elegant sunsets.
My wife and I chose to live in Bradenton, Florida, in large part because the city governmnent here encourages home-based, arts-oriented businesses instead of catering primarily to condomites and their view-blocking monstrosities, as is all too common in this state.
