I have always been fascinated with place and cities in general. One of the aspects that makes a city great to me is urban vibrance intertwined with great gren/public spaces.

To that end is there a good pattern allows both to seemlessly intertwine without decreasing vibancy.

I put a little grid together of what a hypothetical urban center could have to intertwine commercial/retail/housing/green space.

I think this would be interesting because the green space would never act as a barrier to vibrancy yet there would also be lots of green space and it could be cohesive.

So the below is a grid with the green as park/public space intertwined into mixed use blocks everywhere else. Any thoughts on the pros and cons
