MacArthur Geniuses

The new list of MacArthur "Genius" Awards has been released and it has a couple interesting selections that relate to planning. After gulf coast hurricanes, John Henneberger has done a remarkable job of identifying common ground and negotiating solutions through the Texas Low Income Housing Information Service. Rick Lowe has been using art to transform neighborhoods in need of redevelopment or rehabilitation. And the special thing about these fellowships is that you can't apply for them, they have to find you. So the work these Fellows are doing has clearly stood out.
