JCDC goes to SXSW (well, 1/2 of us)

I took my first legitimate vacation in over a year this past week by traveling to Austin, TX, for the annual South By Southwest music festival. Probably just as exciting as a week of nonstop music was the chance to visit one America’s most vibrant and design-progressive urban centers. Practically everything we contend for at the JCDC in regard to more sustainable design practices can be found in some form or fashion in Austin. Walkable and bike-friendly streets provide a sense of small-town community and efficient transport in this city of 1 million. Local businesses are fiercely supported by an increasingly young, diverse, and motivated citizenry. And while Austin’s persona is largely spearheaded by its eclectic creative class, people of all persuasions call Austin home.
