Still more recommendations and responses to Jesse’s question:
I would encourage a student in high school and university to study art, geography, and how to think creatively. I order to succeed in the latter, (s)he should read as much Edward de Bono as possible!
Michael von Hausen
Best to take art to learn how to draw, geography and socials to understand the physical and social dynamics of cities, math for basic understanding of quantitative measurement of cities. Science can help too, especially biology to understand nature in the city.
Matt Flynn in San Francisco says:
