The Site of the Month for December, Brand Avenue, is a site I recently stumbled upon and I actually have no idea who runs it. However, I think it is a cool site with great content that also looks slick. The site has a heavy focus on architecture and urban issues (notice a trend with selecting architecture sites—and I’m a planner). Be sure to check out the article entitled Woonerven. The woonerf concept is starting to pick up traction in the United States, although it’s generally called “Home Zones” here. I like the term woonerf better!
Brand Avenue will be considered for the 2006 Walkable Neighborhoods Website of the Year award, along with the past and future recipients of the monthly awards.
