We also begin a three-part series of street-corner conversations with architecture and urban design commentator Tom Diehl, who looks at our tendency to plan and construct big building and landscaping projects, but forget to take into consideration the little details that can enhance or degrade the asthetics and desired effect of the main attraction . . .
